Whoa Nellie's Pumpkin!

I'm in a Halloween mood! We got a ton of it in at work and I spent the last two days setting up Halloween costumes and had a blast!  I also put out some new paper by DCWV called Bewitched and just had to have it!  And when I get it, I have to use it!  I'm really impatient when it comes to paper.  I've been looking for some stamps that really made me stop and just go, "Wow, I love that!" and I found it with Sherri Baldy's stamps! They're fun, a little sassy, and just as sweet as they can be!  Oh, look at this cutie, Nellie's Pumpkin:


Isn't she just a cutie pie sitting up there on that huge pumpkin?  I think she looks like a little pumpkin patch pixie!  I love her sweet cat and have named her Smokey!  She's colored with copics and I used some stickles on her underskirt, row and in the pumpkin's cutouts.  The flowers were made by me and yep, I stickled them!  The papers are from the Bewitched stack from DCWV and I made the bow by using a great tutorial on my friend, Karen's blog.  I finally have a bow that I like!  I used some baubles on the top corner and on the inside.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the edging on the band on the card, but it's hard to tell.  You can see it on the inside so much better.

I love her sweet face and wanted to show you a picture of it close up.


Isn't her dress just the cutest thing?  And I love the detail in her little stockings!  Here's a peek of the inside:



And the inside, just for Judy!


I hope you enjoy my little bit of the spooky side and hope you'll stop by and take a look at the extremely talented artists at the Scrapbook Stamp Society.  So much talent and inspiration to be found there!  Have a great day everyone!
