Hello Pumpkin

It's October...already. Seriously, HOW does that happen? 2012 is almost over...which means Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner - GULP!!!
Sweet Nina at Paper Cupcakes has invited me back for another round as Guest Designer - I LOVE her cupcake images. This week, we are celebrating fall so I could not resist using this adorable pumpkin cupcake - YUM!!

The layout is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #168...with a few revisions/alterations. Sketches are always a great starting point; I think you can easily see the sketch within my card though.

I colored the cupcake wrapper then added white dots with my gel pen. I tried using my Copics from darkest to lightest as I've been taking a class from Suzanne Dean...can I just say, I struggle so much this way - its backwards to me, but I'll try with some other images - like hair! I like how she colors, but whoa man, I can't make it work for me. :(

Oh well, I still love the image!

Hope you'll join us this week with your fall creation; we love seeing what you create!
