I have a pair of pumpkin themed cards to share today, both using stamps from My Favorite Things. The first one's for this week's Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch challenge--and I think it might be my favorite of the two.
I used the Pure Innocence Li'l Pumpkin girl as my focal image. She's colored with Copic markers to coordinate with the multicolored polka dotted paper I used to cover most of the cardfront. I cut her out and attached her to a circle panel that I made into a simple scenic background by adding a green section to the bottom.
The busy polka dot panel has a more subtle grid patterned strip along the right side. Once it was in place, I attached three strips of orange twill around the panel, then added the image panel on top. The "hello, pumpkin" sentiment is stamped on a little flag piece and set on the edge of the image panel.

I covered the cardfront in a fun plaid pattern, then added a contrasting orange on orange polka dot strip across the bottom. The strip is wrapped with some golden yellow ribbon. After setting the image panel in place, I added a pair of felt clouds for some texture along with a little button-embellished bow. The ends of the twine I used to thread the button onto the bow are twisted for a whimsical look.
