Avocado Arts: Happy Halloween

Can you believe that it's September 1st?  Here in Florida we are still having 90 degree+ weather, so somewhere along the line, summer zipped on by.  I guess it's time for me to start thinking fall/holidays.  Kind of scary how fast time flies.
Anyhow, today the Avocado Arts design team is showcasing the September, Thankful for You stamp set.  It has images/sentiments for both Halloween and Fall (kind of love that), so you will have multi uses for this set.  I created, a card base using the Labels Twenty-Three from Spellbinders, layered it with some My Minds Eye pattern paper, then die cut more MME pattern paper using the Star Circles die set.  I paper pieced the pumpkin onto pattern paper, then colored it in using Copic, and did the same thing with the stem.  To give the card some dimension, I popped up each layer using foam tape.  To finish off the card, I added some natural twine at the top of the card.
If you have time, visit the rest of the designers, I am sure they have some great projects to show you today.

Material Used:
Avocado Arts: Thankful for You
Spellbinders S4-335 Star Circles
Spellbinders S4-347 Labels Twenty-Three
My Minds Eye Lost & Found two
American Crafts this to that foam tape
Versafine Onyx black ink
May Arts twine
