Smilin' Pumpkins

We had a very good Thanksgiving. We celebrated it on Saturday. Each of our 3 girls brought something for the meal (it was so nice....more time to visit). There were also 3 dogs in the house...and they were all really good.

The card I have for you today is the first Halloween card I have ever made. I love Halloween papers and colors .....and have been inspired by all the wonderful Halloween cards and projects everyone has been making.

This card is also for my mother...who always has a Lovely smile for everyone.

I used the SC144 sketch challenge.

Here's my card:

Stamps - SU Batty for you, SU Canvas, Will'n Way. Paper - Whisper white, dcwv textured CS and printed paper, SU dp, assorted cs scraps. Ink - classic black, close to cocoa, old olive and elegant eggplant. Accents - ribbon, stickles, stitching, colluzle, paper piercing and cord. Image is colored with prismacolor pencils and OMS....and then mostly covered with stickles.

Thank you for looking everyone and your lovely comments!!! Have a Great Day!!!
