The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC100

Hello all you crafty blogging buddies! It is another rainy day here in NC so that means another play day in the studio!  Today’s card is another Halloween card which is being entered into The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC100. This is my first time playing at the PDCC. I really love that they chose the color palette and you design based on the colors.

Here is my entry that is based on the inspiration photo below.  The base of the card is dark green cardstock that is punched in the top right corner and edged in gold. The next layer is a cream cardstock that is embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and highlighted with Versacolor Umber.

The large round medallion is stamped with Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s Pumpkin Border Set and topped with a quilled pumpkin.  I just love quilling items for my cards. I am never without the perfect embellishment since I can just make it! The small square sentiment is on scraps of orange paper and shaded using a positioning template from RST.

Finally, the card is finished off with a beige grosgrain ribbon and flat bow, gold pearls and 3 orange buttons.
