Cats and Pumpkins JR60

Greetings from th Pumpking Patch.  I began making this card by taking a piece of cream cardstock and using the Cuttlebug Embossing folder.  I next swiped the image with Versamark watermark and wet embossed it with pearl embossing powder.  Next, a spellbinder pumpkin ws cut out of the center.  Meanwhile, I had stamped/embossed the cat in the pumpkin image on a goldenrod colored piece of vellum.  Prisma pencils were used to color it.  Once colored, I flipped it over and used my embossing tool to "pop" it out. (tiny circular strokes). A piece of gold cardstock was attached to the back, and the whole was attached behind the pumpkin cut out.  The cat is a spellbinder die cut with a tiny piece of the vellum attached behind the eyes.  Lastly, Scaredy Cat was embossed on a piece of gold cardstock, cut out with a Spellbinders and attached to the base with two glitter black brads.  I created the "frame" by layering black and gold cardstock and using an exacto knife to cut the slots.  Finally ready to finish the sketch design, I layered May Arts ribbon (ivory silk, gold sheer green leaves, and pumpkins)  Tiny Swarovski jewels (jade opal) were scattered along the vine/leaves.   Whew! done...I hope you enjoy!
