Reminder: TIME OUT Challenge # 94

Hi everybody, hope your having an outstanding week and everything is going to plan. My day has been absolutely flat out and I really just want to lie down but still so many things to do and I would be so bored if my life wasn't chaos anyway!!

This is the inspiration photo for our current 'Home Sweet Home Photo Challenge' at TIME OUT.  You can be inspired by anything in this photo, the colours, the objects or maybe the theme, its totally up to you!!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is Stamplorations and they have a $10 gift voucher for the winner!!

My eyes were drawn straight away to the orange pumpkins and I knew I had to create a card with a Halloween theme:

So many glorious pumpkins and one cute little frog, all courtesy of My Favourite Things 'Witch way is the Candy?'

I started by stamping all the pumpkins on a piece of white CS and coloured them all with my pencils, altering their colours slightly so they weren't all the same. Once I was happy with them I fussy cut them out and tried out different arrangements with them on the card front.

To give them some grounding I used a grey pencil to create a line and shading, just something very subtle. I adhered the bigger pumpkins to the card front and popped the smaller ones up on foam tape. The frog was also coloured with pencils and fussy cut, and put in place on foam tape as well.

I wanted to keep the sentiment simple, so stamped it in black ink of a piece of white CS, adhered it to a piece of orange paint chip and then cut around it to create an orange border. This was put on foam tape, along with some black half-beads in black.

I've got four challenges I would like to enter:
