A Sweet Pea Halloween

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! We've almost made it to the end of the week. I cannot wait until the three day weekend. Do any of my friends in the US have any exciting plans for Labor Day? I think we're just going to take it easy here, get some chores done around the house, maybe see a movie, and of course, I'll spend some time in the craft room :)




For my card today, I had to ink up this new Halloween image from Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image is called Not Just a Pumpkin and I had so much fun coloring this one. Halloween is my favorite holiday to make cards for so I enjoyed putting this card together. I colored the image with copics and then sponged around the image with purple ink. I added some Stardust Stickles to the pumpkin for some sparkle. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Perfect Plum and Basic Black). My DP is from DCWV (the new Halloween stack, I just got it at JoAnn's). For some finishing touches, I added pearls, Primas, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you all have a wonderful day and thank you all so much for stopping by.
