A pumpkin for Alex


     I have another fall inspired card for you today that uses Whimsy and Stars Studio's "Alex's Pumpkin".  I colored him up with Copics and used some more of the papers from the gorgeous Simple Stories "Harvest Lane" collection.  Slowly but surely figuring out how to work in all those MFT dies I splurged on.  ☺
     I also added a bit of lace cause that's the special ingredient this week at the Catered Crop.  Linda wants to see lace on your projects so pop over there and play along.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
