Patchwork Pumpkin

Do you ever use your papercrafting skills to decorate your home? Today I'm sharing a fun patchwork pumpkin that can be used to do just that OR you can create some bright and cheerful cards with it - the choice is yours!
You can add your finished pumpkin to a Stretched Canvas (embellished with a strip of wide Petaloo lace) ,a mini chalkboard, or make a greeting card to send to friends.
 For step by step instructions on creating the pumpkin along with a free template: Visit today's post on the Cropstop blog!
 Supplies and Tools:
Mosaic Memories (Recollections), Rusty Hinge/Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Sponge Daubers, Ribbon, Fall Foliage Dies (Tim Holtz), Oval Die (Hero Arts), Sentiment (Making Memories), Blossom Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Burlap String, Basketweave Embossing Folder (Darice) Stretched Burlap Canvas, Mini Chalkboard, Seam Binding, Petaloo Ribbon, Knitted Embossing Folder (Couture Creations), Petite Striplet - Jubilee (Sue Wilson Die)

Outstanding way to decorate your home with touches of fall. The textured background and the wonderful fall colors on your pumpkin are so impressive. And a free template too! Awesome! Thanks for sharing this with us at The Mod Squad Challenge this week.
