DTC Challenge #153B "Recipe to a Happy Harvest" - Card 2 Happy Harvest

This is my Design Team project for Double Trouble Challenge #153 "Recipe to a Happy Harvest" which includes at least 3 patterned papers, 2 embellishments and 1 Fall or Harvest Item. Twisted Sister's optional twist is to consider using Try Stampin' On Tuesday Sketch #632 and add a sentiment for another chance at the random drawing.  

When making another card for this challenge, I set it aside for a future date.  I had many additional pre-cut/layered patterns from the Gnome paperpack which I was able to put together for a second card. Chose three of the patterned papers but this time chose a Cornucopia image for my Recipe.  

Colored my image with Copic Sketch brushes using a variety of colors to match the colors in the paperpack, rectangle sized with part of the image fussy-cut and then layered with pumpkin cardstock.  Sentiment was stamped below the image on the larger panel and two green dots were added in the upper r-h corner to finish my "Recipe".  

On the inside of the card added some patterned paper to the the right-hand side border.  

I'm not laughing now because I got two cards out of my decision to use a striped turkey in my first card (see here).  

Please hop on over and join us at Double Trouble, check out the Design Teams inspiration and then let us see what you create... hope to see you there. You may also like to hop over to Try Stampin' on Tuesday, check out their Design Team members inspiration and see how easy it might be to combine these two challenges.

As soon as I saw this card I knew it was for the Double Trouble Challenge, and it pairs perfectly with our Cardz 4 Galz #211. Wonderful card, and it's fabulous that you have three challenges in one project. Thanks for playing along with us at Cardz 4 Galz. I hope to see you in the gallery again soon.
