Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  I really took a few liberties on this sketch but if you look closely you will see the inspiration.  I inked up the new Gather Together stamp set today and love all the images.  Because fall is my favorite season, working with pumpkins and leaves just makes me happy.  It is going to be 97 degrees today so fall may still be a few weeks off but hey, we can still make fall cards.

The sketch:

      Thank you so much Julie. It was hard to decide which card to use after I got them both done. I had already written the blog for the pumpkin one so used the other one for Monday. I will be curious which is your favorite.
