Good Thursday Morning Peeps!!!

Today's card is made with this weeks sketch challenge on Splitcoast.

I know I am pushing it a bit, but you all know I love Halloween.

I changed up the sketch just slightly to fit my sentiment. I put the sentiment strip in front of the orange strip, in the sketch it was behind. Just a little change, otherwise the layout is just the same.

The pumpkins from the Autumn Harvest set was stamped onto watercolor paper, I used markers and my aquapainter to color them in. The sentiment comes from the retired stamp set Autumn Apparitions.

The base of the card is old olive and the designer series paper is from the Cast-A Spell pack. Each layer is matted with basic black. I added some 1/4 inch black grosgrain ribbon and to the sentiment panel I added three black sticky pearls.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
