Simply Betty Challenges #6...

Good morning, crafty bleeps!  Happy Friday!  Woohoo!  TGIF!  Yepper, Friday is here, so that means another challenge over at the Simply Betty Challenges blog!  This week's challenge is to make Thanksgiving place cards.

I made mine using one of the new Steampunk Gang digis called Gwendolyn.  Be sure to head over to the Simply Betty Stamps Shop and pick up some fun and quirky stamps for yourself!  :O)  I made the tag by printing her out at 50% opacity with the name plopped on top (at 100%) with a drop shadow.  I was going to leave it uncolored so the name on the place card really showed up, but that didn't suit me.  I didn't attack it with the same amount of color I usually do, but it's better with the color...believe me!  I sponged a bit of ink around the edges, matted it, punched the whole and tied it to the super cute pumpkin.  I got the directions for the pumpkin on The Pink Elephant.  I sure hope you like it!   {Sorry for the terrible photos!  I could not for the life of me get a decent picture, but I got lots of crappy ones!}





Be sure to check out the amazing talent of the other members on the DT!  Their links are on my sidebar or you can see them all over at the SBC blog!  Have a great day!
