Pumpkin Boo


How cute is this lil' pumpkin?  I used a free digital image of a pumpkin that Jane of Plain Jane was so nice to design and share.  It was just a pumpkin, but I thought it needed a cute little face and so after coloring the pumpkin with my markers, I added the face using a sharpie black pen.  Well, I could stop there and make my own sentiment, too.  I don't know if you can tell from the photo or not, but I added Crystal Effects to the eyes, nose, dots in the corner of the mouth, the dots on the letters and the 3 dots in the upper left corner of the card.  Wow...I am sure some of you have already figured this out...I punched little black circles out, glued them to the card and added Crystal Effects and oh my goodness...no need to buy those little stickers that look like brads or gemstones, I can make my own and whatever color I desire.  Just a little tip incase you didn't already know that.  The paper is from the Spooktacular by K & Company.  I am getting a lot of mileage out of this paper stack.  That pretty much does it for this card.

I used the sketch from this week's challenge at Card & Things Challenges.
