Old Truck, Pumpkins & Sunflowers - MMSC72

Well, here we are with the first Day of Autumn. You wouldn't know it since the temperature was 90° today here in PA.


My card today was inspired by the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week. I love playing along with Priscilla's sketches.

I used two fabulous images from Fred She Said. The first is the Old Truck and the Other is the Pumpkins and Sunflowers. Her images come as Digi's or PreColored.
I printed a very small bunch of Pumpkins and put them in the back of the truck. I also printed the Pumpkims much larger and just cut out the sunflowers from it.
The papers, pearls and ribbon is from Close to my Heart.

I made some Faux Flower Soft for the centers of the sunflowers.

I used matching Embroidery Floss for the Hand Stitching around the card.
