Now finally onto my card ;-) As you can see there is one color missing on my card...warm red...well who ever can read has a clear advantage...bummer! Ok but I got the orange & brown and instead of red I have a warm is at least a fall color! :-) I used a Tilda image and the pumpkin from last years Magnolia fall collection. I colored her and the pumpkin using Copics. I cut out the pumpkin and added 3D glaze to it for a nice shine and some extra dimension. For part of my background paper I used Core'dinations Cardstock from the Chocolate Box pad, embossed it with the pumpkin embossing folder from Cuttlebug and than sanded it to unveil the yummy color. In addition I painted the embossed pumkins using shimmerz paint to give them a nice shine and deeper color. The sentiment is computer generated. I distressed around the image and sentiment using 'Spiced Marmalade' distress ink. Hope you like it although I'm missing one color ;-)

I also used this weeks sketch from Fridays Sketchers which I think was just perfect for the theme and fabulous to work with!
