Welcome To The Pumpkin Patch

Welcome Back, Everyone!!

Today is October 1 and the temperatures in my area have finally cooled down - Yea!!! 
Fall is here and Halloween will be here in no time flat!!!

Since it's the first of October, that means it's time for the beginning of the October challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ. The theme is always Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow. 

This month's sponsor at Craft-Dee BowZ is 

First Place winner  
will receive 4 digi's

So get your creative juices flowing and submit a project (don't forget the bow)

Let me share my project with you.

I've made a 6"X6" card and 
I started out with a brownish panel on a black card
Next,  I cut a  pumpkin using an Accucut die. (Pumpkin #5)
(This die is a thicker die and it works in my Big Shot Pro)
This pumpkin die has a leaf and a face that can be used as well. 

I cut the pumpkin out of white CS and colored it using my Distress Oxides. I love that new ink.

Next, I printed out my digital image and colored it. 
I then added some grass and the sentiment 

Here is a closer view of the digi image, Fall Pumpkin Trio.

It's oh so cute.

The last item I added was the bow.
Here is a closer look at it.

The bow I used was made with my trusty bow maker. I use it all the time.

If you are bow challenged, this is the tool for you. 
And there are videos on YouTube that are easy to follow and will make it easy for you to master making your bows with this great tool.

Need a bow maker, you can order yours here

Hope you liked my card.It was so much fun designing and making this card just for you.
 I will be back Tuesday showcasing another card with a bow, however, in the meantime, I am submitting my card in the following challenges:
