Carve Me a Pumpkin

     OK, I'm not waiting until the last day to get my card done for the From the Heart Progressive Challenge this month.  I'm determined to keep up with this challenge each month now that I'm back on track.  :-D  The freebie is a perfect image for general fall, Halloween, or Thanksgiving cards.


     I used ProMarkers to color the image, then trimmed and corner punched it.  I matted it and used a different corner punch to round the corners.  The papers are all from Lawn Fawn and both ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used the original corner punch on one lower corner of the card front, too, using that same repeated shape for design continuity.  My final touch was the gem stones at the top of the image and in the bottom, left corner of the image piece.

     Challenges:

Crafting for all Seasons (middle row)

     Between now and the beginning of next week, I have so many scheduled posts!   Not only are my regular DT cards going to be posted but I have a couple of Guest Designer spots that I'm honored to do.  You'll have to keep checking back each day to find out the who, what, where, when details and believe me when I say there are some fun challenges and themes coming up.  Happy Stamping  NanaConnie
