Tractor transfer and Harvest card

How fitting that the two things I have to share actually could go together! I was asked by a dear friend down the road if I would make her son a John Deere birthday cake for this past Saturday. We discussed details and nitty gritty stuff and came to the conclusion that i would make a transfer and she would make a sheet cake. No problem. Here is what I did for her: She put the finishing touches on it at home. Hopefully she will send me a picture of what it looked like all finished so I can post it for ya'll.

Today's Featured Stamper 90 was SpeedyStamper otherwise known as Kay. I decided to case this card of Kay's. I changed the colors and image and left off the cording. I wanted a Harvest card as I have a swap due that I thought I could use the card for if i liked how it turned out. I used the Autumn Vine Designer Series paper, out of SU's Holiday Mini catalog, for the strips. Canvas is stamped on the Really Rust background. The pumpkins/gourds were all masked and then watercolored in with ink. Distressed the edges with more mustard and chocolate chip ink. The sentiment "happy harvest" is from Loads of Love Accessories. Used the stamp-a-ma-jig to get it to line up right beside each other as the stamp is actually 2 lines. Fit into the word window punch perfectly. Distressed with the same inks and adhered with dimensions.

I like how it turned out so now I have to make 16 card fronts for the swap I'm in! :)

stamp: Autumn Harvest, Loads of Love accessories, Canvas; paper: chocolate chip, very vanilla, more mustard, really rust, autumn vine dp; ink: black stazon, pumpkin pie, more mustard, chocolate chip, garden green; accs: word window punch, aqua painter, dimensions, sponge

Very nice card! You did a great job coloring and chosing your background paper. I love how you distressed the edges. It seems to make the pumpkins look "set back" in the card. Cool b-day cake also.
