This card was made for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge #236. It's a lovely sketch, and I immediately thought of using the Jack o'Lantern from Seasonal Chums as the circle element. Here is the sketch:
After stamping the pumpkin on Shimmery White, it was colored with a Blender Pen and ink pads, then fussy-cut. I only needed the front of the pumpkin for this, so I tossed the back half. After we made a dump run, it occurred to me that I could have put the backside image on the inside of the card front and it would have been really cute. D'oh!
The strip to the left of the pumpkin was the perfect place for the greeting, but the greetings in the Seasonal Chums set didn't quite work for what I wanted, so Teeny Tiny Wishes came to the rescue!
I love these CAS cards because they are almost always quick to make. Did you know that you will be able to start ordering from the holiday catalog this Friday?! Whoop whoop!
