Pumpkins for Sale

Happy Wednesday and welcome to our latest and greatest challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This is one sketch you are really going to have to use...again and again, it's that fun!!

Our sponsor this week is The Doodle Garden. Take a moment to look around, you'll find lots of fun images! The prize being offered to our winner is 5 free single digis. And now a little bit about The Doodle Garden:

  "HI all!

Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little bit about the gal behind The Doodle Garden digis!

I'm Jennifer L Nilsson (but please, call me Jenn or Jenna!). And I am blessed to be able to work full-time from home as a licensed artist.

 
I enjoy creating bright whimsical pieces for manufacturers, but also wanted to be able to offer something to those who like to craft. So I have begun my journey with digistamp designs with my Etsy shop: The Doodle Garden.


It's fairly new, but is growing pretty fast and I am SOOO enjoying creating these little whimsies for YOU!"

Here's my card using the image Pumpkin Cart. I have a little explaining to do because I can hear you all saying "it's crooked!!" I say it's going up hill! I fretted over the position of this image for a very long time. If I made the ground flat, the bird looked like it was about to fall off the pumpkin. At more of an angle, the pumpkin on the ground looked like it was going to roll right off the card. My eye simply could not decide what looked best so I compromised. I kept with the circle theme too with the embossed background and designer papers. Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you can join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday

There are a couple of challenges I'd like to submit my card to:
Love to Create - Lots of Layers  
Kaboodle Doodles - Fall Themed Items

Hi Linda Happy Halloween, hope all is well with you and hope the storm didn't hit you. Love your card and the pumpkins, isn't it funny I didn't notice the angle you mounted your image, until you brought it to our attention. Love your colour combo. Take care and have a wonderful week and take care.
Hugs

Love that image Linda!! And I know what you mean about placement... I think I would have gone with the bird - birds never sit tilted... at least I don't think they do ;-) Love, love, love all the polka dots!!
Blessings to you!!

I'm a big fan of polka dots so your card was one of my favorites this week. Your story of the bird made me giggle. I would have done the same!
