Hey Pumpkin

Hi all!!!
What lovely weather we are having here in Arkansas.  Leaves are turning and the sun is shining and the temperature is topping out near 70 degrees by day and high 30s over night.  Fall jacket weather is my favorite time of year.

To celebrate, I have made a card for my sweet psuedo niece.  She is actually the daughter of my research assistant, who doesn't have family in the states and we have become quite close over the 3+ years we have known each other.  I have posted other cards for little Olivia, who is 9 months old today!  Today I have a little fall/halloween card for her.

No DP today - quite unusual for me.  Instead I dry embossed the background with a Sizzix folder of a tree that I have never used before.  I used MFT leaf dies.  The image is sweet little Beatrice Pumpkin from CC Designs.  I colored her with Copics.  CS is from DCWV.  You say, but there isn't a sentiment on the card.  Ah, I saved that for the interior:

because pumpkin is what I have called her these first 9 months of her life!
Her mom tells her that I am her Tia Catalina, and it so warms my heart!

Surprisingly, I also didn't use a sketch this time.  I managed to create a card without one!!!  I am entering the following challenges:

City Crafter - pumpkin patch
Without Words - pumpkins
Shopping our Stash - halloween/or orange and black

Thanks for stopping by!
