Hey Pumpkin!

Hey pumpkins! ;) Last night I had some fun with the newest Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. Still loving the feeling of fall and Halloween (it is still almost 80 degrees here in Pittsburgh, but now it feels like fall is right on our doorstep). Here is the sketch:

And here's my card!

(I love it!)

The card is 4-1/4 square, so it is a little different than the rectangle sketch.

The stamps are from the Cosmo Cricket Haunted Collection. (Have I mentioned that I have a thing for vintage Halloween?) The little pumpkin was stamped in Tangerine Tango ink onto Tangerine Tango cardstock and then cut out. His other pumpkin parts were stamped onto various colors of cardstock and then cut out. One of his eyes and his mouth are popped up. I loved the mixed-up crazy look! 'Hey Pumpkin' was stamped repeatedly in Pumpkin Pie ink onto Summer Sunrise cardstock. The background is a combo of the bat and star, stamped randomly in True Black onto Enchanted Evening. I finished it off with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

What do you think? Fun color combo too!

Well it is Wednesday, and the week is half over. I could go for a 4-day work week every week. Hope you are having a great day! See you tomorrow!
