Pumpkin Happy Birthday CCMC266

Time for another Thursday challenge from Create with Connie and Mary, and today it is a color challenge:  Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry!

I recently got the Perfectly You Hostess set and the Halloween Happiness single pumpkin stamp from the Holiday Catalog and thought what with the colors this week, this would be a great chance to combine all these for a fun little banner on a card.  

The Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper was used for two of the banners as it has all three of these challenge colors.  The two pumpkins on the ends are from the Halloween Happiness set and were colored with markers, stamped then punched out with the Hexagon Punch.  The center pumpkin is from the Perfectly You set.  Linen Thread with Glue Dots holds the banners.

The card base is Crushed Curry.  A layer of Chocolate Chip Core-dinations cardstock was dry embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder and the Big Shot then sanded to reveal the lighter core.   The Happy Birthday greeting is stamped onto another Crushed Curry print from the same Sweater Weather package. 

Here again is the color scheme for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge this week:
