Here's my card for this month's first Viva la Verve sketch. I created a clean and simple seasonal design using a pair of pumpkins from Verve's Bountiful Harvest stamp set.
I stamped the pumpkins on a cream pierced square panel, then colored the images with Copic markers. After matting the image on olive cardstock, I adhered it to an orange panel with an orange houndstooth patterned paper strip along the left edge. The set's "hello pumpkin" sentiment was stamped on the lower right side of the panel. I adhered the finished panel to a kraft card base to match the narrow fishtail flag strip that runs beneath the image panel.
