Circle Blog Weekly Challenge #40

 This week's challenge on the Cricut Circle blog was a sketch challenge that we were also supposed to use glitter or some kind of bling on. It's been a while since I've participated in one of the challenges, so I thought I'd give this one a try. Here's the sketch:

 And here's my card:
As you can see, I didn't get too creative in my interpretation of the sketch, just pretty much followed it as is. Except the pumpkins are a little on the large size. I used the new Sophie cartridge (this quarter's circle cartridge) for the pumpkins and they are cut from a DCWV orange glitter paper and adhered to the card with pop dots. The other papers are also from DCWV, Amber Autumn collection. The stamp wasn't in it's original packaging, so I don't know who made it but it is stamped with SU Close to Cocoa ink. I also added some machine stitching around  the edges.
I hadn't done any crafting for a few weeks before I made this card, so it was a good jump start for me. This hot weather we've had here this summer has really drained me but I'm looking forward to creating some fall projects and getting out of this slump I've been in.
Thanks for stopping by!
