I bought the stamp I used on this card when I was in New York City last year. When I saw it, I thought it was really cute and distinct. After playing around with it, I still like it, but I find it kind of difficult to color in. Should the person holding the pumpkin be a person? Should it be a scarecrow? I guess the decision is up to me, which is the nice thing about this craft - there are so many options from one little stamp.
This is the first time I used dew drops on a card. The dew drops started out clear, and I colored them using my Copic markers to make them orange. I am telling you - those markers are so versatile. I can make buttons, dew drops, and ribbon match my cards by coloring them with Copic markers. They are a great investment, and I highly recommend them to any paper crafter!

He, who can call today his own;
He who, secure within, can say;
Tomorrow do thy worst,
for I have liv'd today." -John Dryden
