I (heart) Ghost Pumpkins!

So, I decided to make my pumpkin "white" like a Ghost Pumpkin. At least that's what Martha calls them. I wish I could put one outside, but where I live they rot. Guess I'll just have to settle for a cute card!

Speaking of cute, have you visited Digital Delights lately? New stuff all the time! And cute, cute, CUTE! Right now there is a huge SALE going on!
This card is more classic. It's for the challenge this week. I used the Fall Pumpkin and the Autumn Wishes Circular Sentiment digital 
stamps to make this.

I used paper piecing, and some wire to bring "life" to my Ghost Pumpkin. I cut the sentiment apart to make two layers, per a layout challenge I am entering with this card. 

The paper is from Colorbok and CTMH. The lacey gold strip is made with a Martha Stewart punch, and black ribbon from Offray.
Gems from Hobby Lobby, Distress Ink from Ranger was used to add depth.

I hope you have fun with this challenge at DD...and go shopping for some fun stamps, paper piecings, and paper crafting stuff.

  7. Oh Bev! This is such a beautiful Autumn card! I just love everything about it. It looks very fall, but not the same ole everyday colors. The idea of using plaid for the pumpkin is wonderful! So classy looking!
