My Pumpkin

This is a card made for the Freebie Progressive Challenge, donated by Gerda Steiner Designs, for the October Challenge at The Outlawz Challenges.  First I colored the image with ShinHan alcohol based pens so that I could select an appropriate background paper...I selected a design sheet from the Pathfinding PaperPak which made it appear as falling leaves.  Used Cricut to cut a tree, but it appeared too small; thus cut another one larger and decided to use both.  Cut many colorful leaves and placed on both trees.  Popped up the one in the foreground with 3D foam tape making it appear more dimensional.  With a thin 3D Foam Tape, I popped up the image between the trees to make it appear as child is walking between the colorful trees on a path of fallen leaves with a cart of pumpkins.  Added a cricut cut puppy and popped up with 3D foam tape for a third dimension.  The sentiment was also a Cricut cut and adhered directly to the background and added Wink of Stella. Chose the chocolate design cardstock from Paper Fundamental for the back panel.  Added liquid glass to the tree trunks, leaves and pumpkins to bring out some texture.  

The inside of the card was personalized for the proud owner of this card
