September 5, 2013 Pumpkins

Image from Doodle Pantry new release "Pumpkins", white cs x-pressit, cream cs Coordinations, twine Amuse, spellbinders nesties, copic markers,  bling and button from my stash.

Another awesome release from Doodle Pantry for September and I feel fall in the air - (NOT REALLY) but the cool days and chilly evenings will be here before we know it.  I hate to see summer go as I love the long evenings outside on the porch but the earlier it gets dark the more time I have in my craft room.  Time to start on fall/holiday cards and I am really happy with the way this one turned out, colored the pumpkins with copic markers,  and mounted the image on coordination white core cs which I had run though my cuttlebug then lightly sanded some of the highlights.  Some twine /button at the top and some soft pearl embellishments finish this off.  I'm thinking my daughter and her family will get this for their thanksgiving card. This set Pumpkin is FREE with purchase September 5, through September 24.
