Twisted Thursday Challenge-Add a Pumpkin

Wow, I am barely sneaking in with this Twisted Thursday Challenge! The twist on the provided sketch was to use a pumpkin on your project. I don't have any fall or Halloween images from Shirley's 2 Girls (yet!) and it took me a while to come up with an idea that would allow me to incorporate a pumpkin. I decided to play around with the colors with this set and make her into a green skinned witch--yea a reason to use a pumpkin! So I started with this great paper that came from Target's Dollar Spot and cut out the pieces that I would need to complete the sketch that we were provided. I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. I cut out the images and adhered it to the card using foam dots. Those little pumpkins are from a set of stamps that I got at Michael's a very long time ago. They were stamped directly onto orange paper and then cut out and added to the corners of my card. Speaking of needing to get some of the great Halloween and Fall images from S2G, I need to do it before the end of the month while the Halloween images are on sale!
