Digi Haven DT Card

We have a fun new challenge for you, starting today over at Digi Haven.  This time we want to see "Pumpkins".  All you need to do to play along is to use a free pumpkin digi, there are loads out there, check out the Digi Haven blog for lots of links.  The image I've used is from Dearie Dolls, you'll find it here.  Dearie Dolls have lots of lovely pumpkin images to choose from, I really enjoyed colouring this one with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  After colouring, I went round the edges with Scattered Straw and Wild Honey Distress Ink to add some autumnal warmth to the white cardstock.
The sentiment is from a Sheena Douglass stamp set.  The papers I've used are a mixture of Papermania Persimmon and Capsule Collection  in Sunshine, along with some textured blue cardstock and a kraft blank.  All the edges were scuffed with my Tim Holtz tool to give a shabby look.
The final touches are a ribbon, a bow, some wee buttons and a couple of leaves made with an Xcut punch.
Don't forget we also have our month long "Anything Goes" challenge where you can use any free digi you want, we'd love for you to come and play.
