Happy Pumpkin Day.....again!

This card was made for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge for this weekend. This was a fun sketch, although it always throws me a bit of a curve ball to figure out which papers to use and where each one should go. After trying several combinations including additional pattern papers from the BasicGrey Ambrosia collection, I decided to limit it to just these three as it was getting a bit busy.

The pumpkin was stamped on some rust colored cardstock so I didn't have to color it. I did add a little yellow Spica pen glitter to his eyes, nose and mouth, as well as on top of the sentiment. Each of the squares was cut out with my Nestabilities, as were their scalloped mats. I used my perfect layers to cut out the mat for the sentiment. The center square, the pumpkin and the sentiment are all adhered with foam tape to make them stand out a bit. Add a bow and bam, you're done!

Hope you're having a nice weekend! I'm definitely on the mend from my cold and am looking forward to a busy and productive week that will hopefully include a little stamping and coloring time. Have a great week!

I have to ask how you made such a perfect bow??? I guess that's the big question but your card is great. Pat
