Bloggers Challenge if Falling for Grungy Monday!

Grungy Monday is back, baby!  Linda gave us a Holtz-ian Halloween theme, using one or more Tim Holtz products and Lisa's Bloggers Challenge is Falling for You!  Now to me the "pumpkin" is also all about Halloween.  So here is how this goes!

I made a wreath with "Falling Leaves" that were cut from a free digi background image that June of Dezinaworld so nicely offered!  When I first saw this background, I knew I would use it for leaves!  After I cut the leaves using Tim's Autumn Gatherings, ran them through the crimper, highlighted and shaded using various Distress Inks!  I also cut branches and acorns from the same die!  I wanted a more realistic look to the acorns, so I cut these using Creamy Caramel and then shaded the nut portion with Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade, shaded the stem part with Vintage Photo and just around the very edge of the nut!  Dried and then added Rock Candy Crackle to the stem portion!  Filled in the cracks with Golden Mist Opalite and a quick cover over the nut!  The Pumpkin was cut from chipboard and Pumpkin Pie, colored the stem, covered with Rock Candy Crackle and then added Spiced Marmalade.  The back panel sides were embossed with one of the new Texture Fades borders.  The center pumpkin is a new Movers and Shapers from the man!

Terry, this is gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS! I'm with you, show me a pumpkin and my mind goes to Halloween and stays there. This beautiful card covers the entire season, too, and if I were you I'd display it from the autumn equinox until time for Christmas cards. It's perfect, and I'm so happy to see you back at Grungy Monday!

Hugs,
Linda

Terry, Your work is a treasure! Just so much detail. Gorgeous! Thanks for stopping by my blog, too. The ribbon was purchased at the end of the season last year at Michael's and the birds were on the ribbon. Not much into the scary side of Halloween, but I do like birds! Best, Yvonne

Today the sky is grey and it’s quite cold here. I do like the fall season ... but I know that a long winter is ahead and that is the part that I don't need:)
