The perfect pumpkin

Hi blogging friends-
I am back this morning to share another card that I made for the Sentimental Sundays challenge today!!

I  have made step cards before, but never a double -sided stair step card. 
So for me, this was fun and a bit challenging!!

Here is my card sample:
Here is a close up of my free handed cut pumpkins and my colored image.

I used Meljen's Pumpkin Bumpkin image!  I had it colored and wanted to use it last week, but I'm glad that I held off because I managed to fine a sheet of Crate Paper to put this card together. 

I have to admit that I am finding it very refreshingly challenge to make cards without all the hassle of having to find embellishments to match....Please don't tell Patrick I said that!! LOL!!!

Thanks for peeking through today!!!

  1. Wow, look at you with the fancy cards today! Making a card like this scares me, lol. The only thing I have tried is an easel card. Loving the paper, and the pieced pumpkins, and your scarecrow is colored just beautifully.

  2. I love the little pumpkins stamped and cut out of the patterned paper. It works so perfect. I really like your colouring on the little scarecrow. Since I started taking a few lessons I really appreciate the skill involved now!
    Thanks for sharing! :)
