Pumpkin Time

     I've spent the weekend doing both Christmas and Halloween themed cards and today I'm sharing one of the fall/Halloween cards.  The stamp is from Digistamps4Joy and I think it's adorable.


I was inspired by the colors in the mood board at Sum More Fun.


     I used ProMarkers to color the image and white gel ink to make the stars.  I cut the moon from white CS (colored with ProMarkers), added it to the corner, then cut the entire image with a Tonic Studios die.

    I printed the sentiment, cut it with another Tonic Studios die, matted it with yellow CS, and cut that with my paper cutter.  I added everything to an embossed card front and found a lace bowtie to add.  I left it CAS because it will be sent to one of the guys in my family.

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

It will soon be "that pumpkin time of year". I have mixed feelings, but I do love fall cards and this is my favorite kind of fall card. Cute image, wonderful embossed background, fun homemade sentiment... and it's another perfect card for our Double D Moon/Stars challenge. Thanks for thinking of us!
