Mark's Finest Paper Blog Hop Day 4

Today's featured set is Thankful Mums and Pumpkin. This is a very versatile set great for year round use.
I used the large mum and the sentiment from the set and colored it in Copic markers. For the card base I tried the crimped diamond technique that was featured this week on SCS. Very easy and worked perfectly with the new diamond Nesties.



I had to make another one, this time using the pumpkin image. I added little happy faces to the pumpkins with my Copic markers, paper is retired SU, lace is new Stampin' Up, drippy goo punch by Martha Stewart.
