Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater - Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Hello, Crafty Peeples!  It has been a minute since I posted a challenge.  It feels good to be able to create again.  Okay, so this week at The Outlawz Challenges, The Greetings Team is challenging you to create a project that includes a pumpkin!
Since I do not celebrate Halloween or Christmas, this time of year is always interesting for me.  I usually end up doing a lot of fall themed projects or a lot of Thanksgiving cards.

This challenge gave me the opportunity to use a favorite image from my ever increasing supply of digis.  One of the few images I have colored and actually liked the outcome.  Hope you like it as well!

Thanks for dropping by!
Hugz, Chana
 Correction:  This lovely image is by Squigglefly,  I have used it several times, because I enjoy coloring it,  I think it is the wonderful balance that really draws me! 
I was so pleased to find the little brad with the pumpkin in the center!  And I just loved using this paper that I have had for over a year.  My current focus is mixing papers which has lead to me making some wonderful discoveries in my (Extremely Large and Exceedingly Fast Growing) 6"x 6" Pads collection.
These wonderful leaves were made using vellum and TH Distress Inks.  There is a link at the bottom of this post to the Tammy Tutterow Tutorial.  I had the leaves straightened, but they began to curl again as we were setting up the photo shoot.  I love this technique and plan to use it for other embellishments.

I just received this little Acorn Stamp last week, so timely!
