Cam's Pumpkin

I made this card for two reasons. First, my friend Carolyn King (Cammie on SCS) designed a stamp set called Whimsical Autumn. It's darling, and 100% of Cam's proceeds are going toward Alzheimer's Research.

Cam is also going to honor Alzheimer Care takers on Sept. 21 (National Alzheimer's Day). Check out her blog HERE for more details. She'll be having over $600 in blog candy available. There are so many generous people out there, it just warms my heart to overflowing!!

I was inspired by todays SCS Inspirational Challenge, to use these colors and swirls and leaves. Click HERE, then on the word file below the explanation of the challenge. I'm technologically challenged, so I'm not sure how to link this any better. I'm so sorry.

I stamped the Pumpkin image, from the Whimsical Autumn set, with Tuxedo Black (Memento) and colored it with my copics. The leaves on the bg are Kaisercraft Elegance Rub ons. The brads in the corners are Crushed Velvet brads (Doodlebug) with Kaisercraft Bronze Rhinestones in the centers. All my framing was cut with my cuttlebug and Nestabilities.

Supplies:
Stamps - Whimsical Autumn (Carolyn King designs with Gina K)
Paper - Papaya Puree Dark, Tawny Medium, Black (Prismatics), Neenah Natural White,
Night Light Jack's Stripes (My Mind's Eye)
Accessories - Copics, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Rhinestone stickers (Kaisercraft), Quickie Glue Pen, Ultrafine crystal glitter, Oval punches (SU), scotch dimensional tape
