Autumn's Lovliest Smile

Did you see the colors for the ColorQ Challenge?

YUMMY!! They made me think of citrus fruit but since I'm also inspired by this quote 'Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile' from Time Out Challenge, so I went with pumpkins instead.


I don't have the colors in SU! inks so I used PTI's Harvest Gold, Orange Zest, Simply Chartreuse, Pure Poppy and Limeade Ice. The pumpkins are also from PTI, Pumpkin Patch. The strip of striped paper was in my scraps and amazingly had all the colors of the challenge. The funky die cut edge is from MFT's Picket Fence die. I was looking for a pinked edge to use and that was the closest I could find.

I'm also entering this card into the Word Art Wednesday challenge, Sisterhood of Crafters, Uniko Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

  16. I'm blown away with what you have done with this color pallet. It's unique and refreshing. The little border detail is super cute. It reminds me of fence posts around a pumpkin field.
