Fall Banner Using...Pumpkin Patch!

Carolina here,
Good Morning and welcome High Hopes Fans!
For the Month of August the "Design Team" over the High Hopes Blog are featuring Fall and Halloween creations.

For today I have created a traditional Fall Banner using "Pumpkin Patch" from High Hopes Stamps.
One of my favorite season of the year is Autumn. Even is still hot here in Souther California, we can see the tree leaves started to change so beautiful!

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copic Markers.
 Once the images were coloured I fussy cut it leaving a small white border. I die cut the banner using Scallop Border Die from Avery Elle. I also distress the edges of design papers with Tea Dye distress ink. The letters are George and Basic Shapes Font Cartridge from Cricut.
To finish my banner I added glossy accent to the words on the sign.

Supplies Used:
Black Archival Ink, Tea Dye Distress Ink, Pumpkin Patch stamp, Copic Markers, Early Espresso Cardstock,  Autumn Crisp Designer paper from American Crafts, Scallop Circle Dies, Lawn Fawn Stamp, PPP Autumn Mix Sequins and Twine.
Copic List: Y17 Y35 Y38 YR04 YR07 YR09 YG11 YG17 YG95 YG97 R29 R39 B21 B93 B95 C1 C5 C7 E37 E51 E57 and 0

Beautiful banner. The theme is also beautiful. The harvest is all begun...I have a farm and we harvest the peas last week and now is waiting for beautiful dry/sunny weather to harvest the grain. We are going to the fall couple a month. the day's are shorter too, earlyer dark.

But for the challenge, do it need to required also the theme: Fall/Halloween? or may it anything goes high hopes image?
