Kid in Pumpkin Costume - Gerda Steiner

Hi, everyone!  I was determined to get my progressive challenge cards finished before the deadline, and here is my final one - yeah!  This one features an adorable image called Kid in Pumpkin Costume by Gerda Steiner.  I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils and added some fun Halloween die cuts. I added a ticket sentiment, which I also coloured with my pencils, and stamped the sentiment in black. Then I doodled some faux stitching around the border of the card to finish it off.

Here are the supplies used:
