Pumpkin Cocoa

Have you seen the new digis that were just released the other day from Sweet N Sassy stamps yet? I think that this digi release is especially fabulous! I love Cocoa and the Cocoa's pumpkin image is one of my new favorites. So the card I have to show you today uses it and the layout is the sweet stop sketch for the week. If you like sketches, you are sure to LOVE this blog. I am a guest sugar baby for the month of October. Below you will find the sketch and my sample.

This is image is so fun to color! I used my copics to do so and I also used vintage photo distress ink to sponge around my colored image so the white did not look so stark with my papers.

Here is a closer look for you:
