Pumpkin Spice DT Call - Thinking of You

I discovered a great new online store and their blog....there I found a link for a new DT call for Pumpkin Spice.  I thought I would throw my hat in the ring and give it a try.  The challenge for the DT call is to use at least two different paper lines from the ones below:

Bo Bunny
Cosmo Cricket
Crate Paper
Echo Park
Graphic 45
My Mind’s Eye
I used three of them.....Bo Bunny for the blue background, My Mind's Eye for the tree, and Echo Park for the grass.
        Cardstock - Stampin' Up! (white, brown),
            The Paper Company (kraft)
        Patterned paper - Bo Bunny (blue), My Mind's Eye (tree),
            Echo Park (grass)
        Die cuts - Cricut with Everyday Paper Dolls cart
        Twine - The Twinery
        Stamps - Lawn Fawn
        Scissors - Martha Stewart
        Ink - Memento
        Markers - Copic (black), Colorbox (brown, green)
        Other - buttons, embroidery floss
I started out creating this card by cutting the tree with my Cricut and Everyday Paper Dolls at 3 inches.  I cut the tree twice (once in green and once in brown) and then cut the trunk out of the brown one.  I then inked them a little and adhered them together.  I added them to the Bo Bunny paper that I had stitched around the edges on.  I added the grass with two strips of Echo Park patterned paper that I cut with my Martha Stewart fringe scissors.  I stamped the banner, sentiment and birds from my Lawn Fawn Bannerific stamps and colored the birds with Copic markers.  I added some button flowers and finished it off with some twine.
I need to list my favorite paper company and I don't know if I can pick just one, but three of my favorites right now are My Mind's Eye, Echo Park, and Fancy Pants Designs.   

I hope you enjoy my card today and that you have a great weekend.  Wish me luck!!
