Guest Designer - Addicted to CAS

Today I am really chuffed, honoured and slightly nervous to be the Guest Designer over at the Addicted to CAS Challenge, where the code word is:-
 
 
This one proved tricky for me as we don't really celebrate the harvest here in the UK and I wanted to make a card that I could use again so after much head scratching, here is my card....
 
Addicted to CAS Challenge Code Word 'Harvest'
 
When I think of Harvest, I am always reminded of pumpkins from when we had harvest festival at school and someone always brought in a pumpkin.
 
I didn't have any harvest related stamps so when I saw this digi stamp from Pink Gem Designs on Etsy, I had to buy it,  particularly as it also had a cute hedgehog peeking out of it!
 
Pumpkin Hedgehog card made for the Addicted to CAS Challenge 'Harvest'
 
I traced around the image in my Silhouette Cameo and cut it out leaving a small white border and then coloured it with my Copic markers.
 
I cut out a piece of white card using the MFT Cross Stitched Rectangles and then double heat embossed the sentiment (Waltzing Mouse - Compact Sentiments) using clear embossing powder and Chocolate Chip ink.  I layered this onto some brown and kraft card and popped it up with some foam dimensional tape.
 
I hope you like it and please hop on over to the Addicted to CAS blog to see what the very talented regular designers have come up with.

I actually made this card back in August when I was kindly asked to be guest designer.  My husband got back yesterday after 6 weeks and I wanted everything sorted before he got home so I may be a bit quiet on the blog front for a few days :-)
