Trio of Challenges!

I am just loving my new Basic Grey papers and the new September kit from Unity. Things are a bit on the rough side in everyday life so I have been immersing myself in my crafts when I get home from school. I like to take a look at the challenges every week that I follow and then just go for it. Sometimes the get combined and sometimes they don't. This card here ended up being a trio of challenges. I was initially creating this card for the 2 sketches 4 You challenge but in the back of my mind I was keeping the Pink Elephant challenge requirements in mind. The Pink Elephant required you to have dots, a punch and a tag. Lastly I have been using my new Basic Grey papers and they have a challenge right now - embossing! When I took a look at my finished card I realized I ended up implementing all three challenges. Good thing I didn't combine a color challenge into this because I think I would have lost my mind.

The details....
Stamps include Unity September Kit of the month
Papers are Stampin Up Razzelberry and Vanilla, along with Basic Grey's new Indian Summer DP
The inks were versa mark for the heat embossing on the polka dots, Razzelberry on the inside sentiment and Unity's new brown. I used my copics to color in my pumpkin.
My embellishments include ribbon from SU.

I really like the way this card turned out. It helps that I am in love with this paper. I hope you like it! Have a great one!
