I made a challenge card!!!

I think this is the first time EVER that I have done a SCS color challenge while it was current. I had planned on taking a nap while the kids were at preschool today but for some reason my stamp room was calling my name. Today the challenge colors were Really Rust, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze (but you could substitue Bordering Blue, which is what I had to do).
I thought the colors made for a perfect fall card. In addition to doing a color challenge I also used an old SCS sketch SC118. I colored my image with colored pencils and OMS and then to give just the pumpkins and apples a shiney look I painted them with Angel Wings Shimmerz.
Here is a close-up of one of the pumpkins so you can see the shimmer (it was hard to see in the full photo)
Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, colored pencils/OMS, Dress it Up glitter dots, Shimmerz.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are all having a great day!
