Pumpkin Emma

It's been a very productive day, but then again, it started at 3:30 am!! I hate when you can't sleep but I've learned not to fight it. I got up and started coloring with my Copics.  I had both Emma and my adorable little cowboy (if you haven't seen him be sure to check the other post for today) completely finished by 6:30 am. So it was a nice relaxing day of just playing with different layouts. (And checking the galleries and forums at Splitcoaststampers!!) It was a nice change after my House Mouse fiasco from yesterday ; )
Anyhow.. on to precious Pumpkin Emma from the Sugarplum line. I adore this image and I did not realize that she is available from All that Scraps in both rubber and a digi image. I only have her as a digi image but when I went to their site to double check her name (I hate to get it wrong) I noticed they have both.
This card is for All the Scraps weekly Wednesday challenge. And guess what!!! I won their challenge last week!! I am so excited I can't hardly stand it because I've never won anything before!!
 This weeks challenge is a color challenge using pumpkin, burgandy and artichoke. At first I thought that background paper was a little too summery for a fall pic but ya' know what? I like it and I think it works.
Of course, by now maybe you've realized I never do just one! And this card is no different. She's also participating in the challenge at Meljen's Designs where I had picked up that adorable "Happy Fall" image.  The challenge there is Autumn colors so that was easy, peasy.
Now I am off to All that Scraps and Meljens for some linkage.
oops..I keep forgetting to add the good stuff ; )
Copics used:
Skin: E000, E00 and E02
