Stampin Up! September 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit

We are home from the Epcot Food and Wine Festival and once we were unpacked and had lunch, I checked on challenges for today. Y'all know I don't do CAS very often, but look what I did for Less Is More Challenge #348 Watercolor


It can't get much more simpler than that! It took 5 minutes to create my card, and I must admit...it's my first CAS that I have liked!

I watercolored the "splotch" with an aqua painter using Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke, and Cajun Craze.  The gold leaf is from the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.

The "Hello" was previously die cut ~ borrowed from a friend. I used that so I could enter Inkspirational's Challenge #144 - Word Prompt
The simplicity of my layout was inspired by 
Sketch Saturday's Challenge #483, which was to pick a sketch from the archives between 215 and 482. As you can see, I chose #381 by Cathy.

It's good to be home again and thanks for looking!
