Friends of WMS Blog Waltz - Wishing You Peace and Plenty

Today I'm participating in the Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz that is run out of the Playroom in the Waltzingmouse Forum.  Why don't you check it out and join us each month on the 17th day!?  It just takes a few minutes to sign up to be a member of the forum.

The theme for October is 'Thankful' or 'Thanksgiving'

My card is a CAS one today -  I stamped the pumpkin and water colored it, using a water pen brush and ink smudged onto the cover of my ink pad - I love the soft subtle color water coloring gives.  I embossed a square Nestability on my card (you've probably noticed this is one of my favorite things to do on a card!) and layered the pumpkin panel inside the frame using foam tape.  I added a little bit of Diamond Stickles to create 'frost on the pumpkin'!

My stamps are from the lovely fall set - Peace and Plenty

Thanks so much for coming by today!  I'm off to check out all of the Thankful cards linked in the forum!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Peace & Plenty
Paper:  Tangerine Tango, More Mustard - SU, Brushed Corduroy - Coredinations Tim Holtz
Ink:  Tangerine Tango - SU, Brushed Corduroy - Ranger Distress
Accessories:  Diamond Stickles, foam tape, square Nestability, Water Brush Pen, Rhinestones - Kaiser

This is a beautiful CAS card Julia, I love it. Your coloring of the pumpkin with that little bit of sparkle is just the kind of card I love to make. I know for sure that I have to get Peace and Plenty before next Fall. Just a great Thanksgiving card.

Lovely CAS card! The watercoloring gives it a lot of depth and warmth. I just got some square nesties, so I have to try that framing technique:)
