Here's what I created using this gorgeous new stamp set...
This card measured 5.5 x 5.5 and let me tell ya... this image was so fun to colour!  I loved making each pumpkin just a little bit different.

I stamped my detailed image and my sentiment onto Flourishes' Classic White Cardstock.  This white cardstock is the BEST for colouring with Copics.  I actually buy it in several packs at a time to ensure I always have lots!

I also wrapped my card using some rich Chocolate Brown Seam Binding.  Flourishes' sells an amazing variety of beautiful colours and each colour matches our Color Made Easy cardstock!  Too perfect!

I coloured my image using the following Copic Collections today...


Now on to our next blogger...  Christine Okken!


Thanks for your great support, and encouraging words again this month and we look forward to what you create with our August Releases!
