Pumpkin Lala

I am not sure if anyone ever noticed, but when I cut my images, I usually ink the edge as well. Click on the picture for a closer look! :) The reason? I have this thing about that little bitty white cardstock on the edge of the cut image. I guess the image just doesn't look neat to me. So each time after I cut an image, I would use a gray Le Plume marker and go over the edge so that I couldn't see anymore white. I know, I am crazy. Who's going to look that close, right? Well, I am! Of course, this is just my opinion.

Oh, on to my card. I made four Halloween cards with the new release from La La Land Crafts. This is Pumpkin Lala! Isn't she cute with that pumpkin on her lap? Oh, just in case you don't know, La La Land Crafts is offering free shipping within the US on all orders over $50 and a discount shipping rate on all International orders.

If you look at the second picture, you will see that I popped the pumpkin a few times to give it some dimension. I love 3d! It just makes the whole card POP! Sketch is from Sketch Saturday.

Gorgepous card Kim. I know what you mean about the white core of the card showing. As well as inking the edges I've takne to going all round the edge with a large ball tool.I'm not too good with scissors, being a leftie,and it smooths the edge nicely.
