Stack of Pumpkins

Good morning!
I think Autumn/fall/Halloween cards are my favorites to make! Mainly because I love the color choices for fall!
This is a simple card for my great nephew! It will be his first Halloween. Doesn't this look like a Halloween baby card?
It's a stamp made by Whipper Snapper stamps. It's a big one, so there's not much to do but color, adhere and you're done!
The card base is Soft Sky stamped in Papertrey's Aqua Mist with a background by Cornish Heritage Farms. (I spread my money to ALL companies!) The next layer is Pumpkin Pie and the image layer is Papertrey white select cardstock stamped in Memento tuxedo black.
I colored this great image with prisma pencils and mineral spirits. I want to work more with this medium, but I seem to grab the copics more often. I almost always sponge the edges of my colored layers with a darker shade of the same color. The pumpkin pie layer is sponged with pumpkin and the aqua mist layer is sponged with baja breeze.
The ribbon is from Michael's (and from my stash!)
Thanks for stopping by! I can't tell you how much I appreciate your company!
Happy Friday!
