Little Miss Pumpkin

Good morning.  It's the start of another week.  Today's card is based on two challenges:  The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop - Week 4 and The Pals Paper Arts Challenge #141.  I kept it clean and simple because the image is the focal point.

This is a 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" card.  The base is Island Indigo card stockNaturals Vanilla card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain embossing folder and attached to the card.  I took four strips of Orchard Harvest designer paper and attached them to another piece of Island Indigo card stock.  This was then added to the card front.  The image from 
the Greeting Card Kids stamp set was stamped on Watercolor paper using StazOn ink and colored with Blender Pens and Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Pink Pirouette and Raspberry Ripple inks.  The buckle on the hat was colored with the Gold Dazzle marker.  I used Sahara Sand ink to create a shadow effect under the pumpkin and broom.  This layer was matted with Island Indigo card stockCajun Craze and More Mustard brads were added to the corner and the image popped up on the card with dimensionals.  I really enjoyed coloring this image; it was probably the part of the card that took the most time.  I hope your week is off to a good start.  See you soon.
