Halloween card

Hey there!  Quick post as I am exhausted!  This is a card I made to fit the tons of Halloween challenges out there!  I started with the sketch from PTW.  I picked some fun fall paper, coordinating colors and went to town!  I made the patchwork pumpkin with some scrap papers.  I heat embossed the jack o' lantern face to make it show up...not my greatest work, but I still love the "rustic" charm ;)  The face is a new stamp I just bought really cheap and the sentiment is from a clear set I got at Joann's.  I finished it off with a handmade stem and leaf and some raffia ribbon with a couple coordinating buttons.  Hope you like him!  Thanks for stopping by!

Monday, Monday!

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  Another weekend over, another Monday is here!  Today brings another Whimsy Challenge! This week, we want to see some embossing on your projects!  I went with the sketch over at The Crafty Pad. I colored Connor on the bike image with watercolor pencils and a water pen.  I highlighted with a white gel pen.  I used clear embossing powder on his helmet and bike.  I also embossed the sentiment in blue powder.  The papers are all from DCWV.  The brads were in my stash.  Thanks for stopping by today and please visit the rest of the Whimsy DT!  Happy Monday!
