Pumpkin Patch

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my Christmas Candy! I'm also tickled pink to have so many new followers, big hugs!!! On today's card I used this adorable image from the Patchpal Scarecrow digital stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps. I think it goes perfectly with Halloween Verse 1 and just have to print the verse for the inside then get it in the mail!

My card base is True Black layered with White Cardstock then patterned paper from the Treasured Brights Paper Pad. The shadow layer is also patterned paper from the Treasured Brights Paper Pad and was layered on True Black. I stitched around the edges of both patterned paper and wrapped white lace around the shadow layer.

The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I rounded the corners, stitched around the edge then layered it on True Black. To embellish the card I added a bow made from black grosgrain ribbon and some black pearls.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
