Critter Pumpkin

I know I said no more Halloween cards, but I needed one more to send out, and this image is so cute I just couldn't resist. The challenge over at House Mouse & Friends for this week was to make a card using a tag. I really struggled with this one, I usually don't incorporate tags into my designs, they usually don't work for me.
I used my prisma color pencils to color in the image, and then OMS to blend. I also added some crystal effects to the pumpkin.
See that little pumpkin tag on the card? I received that as blog candy from Holly! She sent me a whole package of these adorable Halloween charms. I tore open the package and forgot to take a picture.
the sentiment and the bats on the tag are from Gina K designs, Spooky Silhouettes.
I probably won't be posting the rest of the week. My husband and I are having a dinner party on Saturday. With all the cooking and cleaning that I have to do I should probably stay out of my craft room! LOL!
Thanks for stopping in.
Smiles :)

Awwwww...how cute is he:o) What can I say...I LOVE IT ALL!!!! The papers you selected are perfect...what could go better with a mousie in a pumpkin costume than jack-o-lanterns? I love your beautiful layout, the bright and cheery colors, the shine and dimension from the Crystal Effects, the adorable charm (which BTW, I would have torn into that package too;o), and your flawless coloring. Everything about this amazing card is PERFECT!!! Talk about inspiration.

Thank you for playing along with us in this week's challenge. I do hope you will be back for next week's:o)
