Color Throwdown #163 and Creative Belli Challenges #128

Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown!! The lovely Barb is our hostess today and she came up with this fabulous color combo inspired by Bo Bunny's Blitzen dp.
This is also for the Creative Belli Challenge to use Flower Soft, Felt, or Chunky Glitter...I used a felt rose.

 
Sewing was done around the edges of the Crafty Secrets Cotton Scrap and sewing and distressing finished  the edges of the background layers. The Baja Breeze layer was embossed with a pumpkin vine folder and then a white ink pad was run over the popped out pumpkins.   Pearl flourishs, ribbon, lace, and a felt rose finish it off.
This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Stamps R Us - Autumn/Fall
2. UnstampaBelles - Autumn/Fall with bonus of stitching/sewing
3. The Crafty Pad - vintage
4. Fun With Shapes and More - shabby/vintage
