Fall Is Coming?

I have been "stalking" the lovely challenges and entries at Joan's Gardens and decided this week to join in. Her challenge this week is to do a fall theme card using pumpkins or fall leaves with either embossing or glitter. I dusted off an old pumpkin stamp that I love and was one of the first used stamps I bought but is one of my faves.  I colored the image using Copics and added glitter to the leaves. I matted the image with a dark green CS. On top of the base card is an embossed mat that I sponged  the raised edges. I added a cutout flourish that I tucked under the image and left loose on the card to mimic a vine. Finished with a sentiment stamped on an oval.
Other Challenge:
Annabelle Stamps: Say it with embossing

Stamp: Unknown Pumpkin
            Hero Arts "Hello"
Copics: G21, 28, Y02, YR00,02,14
Ink: SU Garden Green
Papers: GKD PL Ivory
             SU Marigold Morning, Bazzill Green

Sometimes it is fun to use one of your old stamps ....the oldies but goodies! Thanks for stopping by.
