Lawn Fawn: Harvest Season re-visited

It's day #3 on the Lawn Fawn August Inspiration week, and today the designers are showcasing a few sets that came out last year, Heebie Jeebies & Harvest Season.  So half of the designers are playing with the Heebie Jeebies set and the other half are playing with Harvest Season.  I am in the half using Harvest Season.  This set has a fall/Thanksving theme to it, but you really get creative with it, when you combine it with other Lawn Fawn sets.
When I sat down to create my card, I wanted to use the set in a different way, not shown before.  So, I started to go through older sets, and immediately stopped in my tracks when I saw the smiley faces in the  On The Mend set.  I decided right then and there, that this pumpkin was going to be smiling...it even whispered it to me...true story. (your stamps talk to you right?  Whew I was starting to feel a little crazy lol)  After the pumpkin was colored in, I inked up the smiley face that is on the tissue box, and stamped it in the center of the pumpkin.  To make it look like the leaves are underneath the pumpkin, I masked the pumpkin, then stamped the leaves.  The card seemed a little too plain, so I stamped more leaves in Versamark (which is a watermark ink), and created a little border on the bottom.  
Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog for all of the information on how you can win some of the stamps shown this week, and visit the rest of the designers blog as we re-visit some of your favorite fall sets today.

I love this! Not only is the pumpkin beautifully colored and cute but the paper colors, watermarked leaves and button truly make this one shine.
