Wild About Pumpkin Pie!

I have a couple colors that I'm really "digging" right now... Old Olive (as shown in a recent post) and Pumpkin Pie. Not necessarily together, mind you! ...but hey, that could work? In any case, here's another card I created before my Scottish guests arrived, and it's full of Pumpkin Pie!

My favorite part is the lion's head. I stamped the lion three times - twice with Apricot Appeal and once with Pumpkin Pie - and then cut out the different pieces to layer it together. The pieces are raised up with Dimensionals to give it a 3D look. Here's a better view:

There's no other tricks... so here's the recipe!

Stamp Sets: Wild About You, Paisley background
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Apricot Appeal, Basic Black
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White
Accessories: Narrow Grosgrain ribbon in Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, and Apricot Appeal

Oh, and the Retiring Accessories List will be posted tomorrow (Monday), so stay tuned and I'll keep you informed!

What a darling card. I love the dimension you added to the lion. It really sets the card off.
