Inspired Pumpkin

I actually spent a good part of the afternoon trying to get some Christmas cards done. However, when I saw the third inspiration piece Stef posted I thought immediately of this image by There She Goes from my fav set called BLOOM. So Christmas cards were put aside not quite finished and I made this card. I used the same image to create the mid panel....kind of make-your-own designer paper....lol!!!!

I used my fav Marvy dimple punch for the corners and my new fav embossing folder for one of the mid layers. Added some brads, a bit of piercing, and coloring with Copics and that was that!! I must say that this is one time the photo actually totally captures the warmth of the colors, which are Pumpkin and Apricot.

Thanks so much for stopping at my blog. I was a very reluctant blogger, so I am always surprised and so pleased when I hear that people check it out and occasionally leave a comment. Know that your comments are greatly appreciated.

Orange is one of my favorite colors -- that and purple! You had introduced me to that scallop corner punch, and every time I see it I think of you! Beautiful card on all counts, my friend!
