Pumpkin Patch

Happy Sunday!
I hope you have had a fabulous weekend!  I've stayed busy but also found time to relax :)  I got to snuggle in bed for awhile this morning with my hubby and our kitties!  So cozy! :)

I've been working on this card for a few days now...mostly because I kept getting distracted doing other things around the house, or for my Etsy shop...but I finally finished it and it is so fabulous!
I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches...I was a little skeptical about it at first...wasn't sure if I could pull it off.  But the more I looked at the DT's inspiration, the more I mulled it over and sketched it out, things finally started the form in my mind.
I wanted to stick to the fall/Halloween type of card style, but lighten it up and not have it be so creepy and dark.  I found a few patterned papers in my stash/scraps that matched what I wanted to do, and set to work.
The frame behind the image is cut from the cricut Lacy Labels cartridge.  I embossed the solid blue frame with the Swiss Dots folder and then embossed the patterned paper with the D'vine Swirls folder.  It adds great dimension and character behind the image.

Of course, Miss Cinders is from none other than Saturated Canary!  I remember as a child always watching the Disney movies...mostly Beauty and the Beast, but Cinderella was always in the mix and I LOVE Krista's interpretation of her :)
I kept the coloring on her simple with teal streaked through her dress and blondish colored hair.  I added some of my new Star Dust Stickles to her shoes, dress hem, sash, and hair bow.
The flowers are files cut with my cricut, inked around the edges, and layered together with a pearl in the center.  I matched the orange on the smaller flowers to the orange used in the circle die cut above the image to pull that color throughout the card.
Then I just added the ribbon and bow, printed off the sentiment and scallop cut around the edge!
So cute!  I just love it!
