the cuttlebugspot challenge 50

happy saturday and world cardmaking day!  hope everyone gets to play all day and if youre entering contests  i hope ya win em all..well excet the ones im entering  ;)
this week over at the cuttlebug spot the theme is fall..woo hoo i have so much fun with this theme.
this  is based on a scraplift from my friend rose.. she owes me big time though cuz shes ALWAYS stealing my card ideas ;) of course im half kidding lol we always bounce ideas off each other and help where we can  we seem to understand where each others crafty ways are leading us  im lucky to have a friend like that i hope you have one or two also :)
 i actually was going to  copy her card exactly  but remembered this stamp i the card took on my own little twist as i made up the design on my own yay me again.   i'll let ya in on a tiny lil secret.. im thinking... just thinking about getting a sketch challenge blog going after the first of the year. we'll see . i love doing them but sometimes find them getting in my creative groove  way too much with ALL the other rules applied to them . so anyways... thank you rose for the card inspiration :)
heres my take on nildas glorious theme, be sure to check out the DTs beautiful cards!
i used my cuttlebug for the pumpkins and the houndstooth and swissdots folders for the panels under the pumpkins.  added a few orange "pearls" from recollections, which also is the paper brand.  i also added some dots using acrylic paint and colorbox fluid chalk for a little distressing.color. thanks so much for looking now go have some crafty fun today! hugs  shelly
