Congratulations Tiffany and Steven

Today's card was made for a wedding! The picture on the card is of my great grandparents who lived in Tennessee for most of their married life. This picture was taken on one of their anniversaries. They were married February 26, 1894 in Monroe County, TN. While gazing at this picture many years later, one of their 11 children stated, "you can still see how much dad loved mom". Tiffany and Steven, I pray God blesses you with just as many happy years together as He gave grandma and grandpa Bowers.
I colored this black and white photo with Copic Markers.  Colors Used: G20, E00, E04, Y11, RV13, R20, R29, R35, ).  Nestabilities die cuts were used.

Pumpkin Patch with Pan Pastels

Welcome fall, it has been a long hot summer! Today's card was created with Pan Pastels and a variety of stamps.  I began with Stampscapes "soft light" and my very favorite Stampscape stamp called "pebbles". I stamped with VersaMark and then blended several colors of Pan Pastels to create the background above and below the fenced area.  The ivy background leaves is a stamp from All Night Media.  The pumpkin isThe picket fence is a Martha Stewart punch. The pumpkin was also stamped with VersaMark with Pan Pastels blending and then I fussy cut around the pumpkin and leaves.The Fluorish is a Cricut cut out.  This card follows the sketch posted on Lisa Somerville's Friday challenge.
