Here is my submission for yesterday’s Ways To Use It Challenge: Get Cracking (WT190).  I didn’t start this card until 9 pm, and I try to be in bed as close to 10 as possible (in order to function the next day) so I made this a simple card.  I don’t like doing simple cards unless I like they way they turn out (and they don’t look “too simple”).  I think this one turned out pretty good.  I’ll likely include this in the batch of cards I send to Splitcoast’s Stamp Your Heart Out Campaign, which gives cards to the troops for their use.  I sure welcome a cause like that which can make use of my odds ‘n’ ends cards, as it seems we usually really only use Christmas, Birthday, and Sympathy cards ourselves, and I don’t always want to just make one of those types!

For a little extra dimension, both the pumpkin stem and the leaf on the pumpkin were stamped in old olive, cut out, and glued into position.  To balance the antique cracking background on the old olive panel, I rubbed a chocolate chip ink pad over the chocolate chip panel.

Thanks for looking!
