Fall Edwin

I'm so excited my ds showed me how to make my pictures look better using adobe photoshop. Kids are fantastic! At least some of the time. lol. I love my kids. Maybe some day I will spring for a new camera to make my cards look even better.  For my card today I needed to make a card for my pastor whose birthday is on Halloween. I don't do Halloween but I do love fall so I used sitting groom Edwin.


He is colored all in copics. I don't remember which fence I used but there were daffodils on it so I had to hide those for a fall picture. I knew I wanted to use pumpkins but these aren't quite big enough to hide everything so I added purple flowers. I might have used a different color but they were the only color I had that were this small and I wanted them small. Oh the pumpkins were cut out of a stamp from the angel company. The leaves, ribbon and brads are from Target's see spot save section. The dp is from basic grey. I put gold stickles in the middle of the purple flowers and crystal stickles on the boutonniere. I went looking for white thread to sew around the edges and almost couldn't find any. I couldn't believe that I the one that sewed all my kids clothes for years was out of white thread, but I finally found some but I think I had better go buy more as I am almost out. 
Enjoy these last few nice fall days.
