A 'Pop' of Autumn

Curtain Call Challenge has some fun 
inspiration up this week.

Looking through my stamps, I don't think I have
anything 'popcorn', so I went with 
a PTI stamp set that reminded me of trees
that change with the season, and kept with
the colors in the photo.
For the kraft bags, I used kraft card stock, and stamped with a tree from Autumn Hills
to make a wallpaper bg.
The Bookmark tag (also PTI) was stamped with
PTI's Plaid Builder, similar to the colors of the plaid bow around the 
popcorn bowl.

Hard to see, but the hills picture frame was masked before adding the stripes.
Colored with watercolor pencils, and shaded around the frame with grey.

And for the silver scoop, the vellum embossed leaves (Branching Out).
Just a few little touches of green, the hills and the stitched leaf behind the 
fussy cut pumpkins.
Play along all week here:

I have the Winter, Spring, & Summer Hills sets, but just realized I don't have the Autumn set and now I'm wondering why?!! Oh well, another one to add to my ever growing wish list!! But anyway, beautiful it!! :0)
