WOWEE - A first for me - 4 in one

Creative Card Crew challenge this week is 'All that sparkles' - Gretel's wings and the gems holding the leaves at the top of the page.
Copic Creations challenge is colouring pumpkins.
Friday Sketchers Friday Sketchers is the fabulous sketch - obviously!!
Last but certainly not least is Georgia's new challenge - Crafty Calender Challenge and she has chosen Autumn with the optional extra of 'plants and vegetation'.



Oh boy did I have problems with this one - I'm laughing now but I was spitting feathers earlier.  A few weeks ago I sent for a couple of Pixie Pippis. but only received one, oh well never mind - wasn't meant to have the other obviously.  When I got this one out and stamped it up............no pumpkin on her head...........wrong stamp, Gretel, not Pippi!!  I looked at it and thought - her hair does look like a pumkin - I'll cut out a stalk, lost the first one and had to do it again.  Really need some more pumpkins for Copic Creations, haven't got any so I though I'll draw some.  Coloured them in - rubbish, start again.
I used Basic Grey's Indian Summer papers, used peg stamps to stamp leaves on the white circle, added some leaves I bought at the local supermarket, used some punched leaves and gems to adorn the top corners and there we have it. At the end of the day I quite like this one which is fortunate after all the effort that went into it.

I had to stop back by to tell you that this card is brilliant! You should still have feathers in your mouth -- 'cause you should feel like the cat who ate the canary -- so smug and pleased with yourself -- as well you should be. The time you spent on this one was indeed worth it!
