Simple Fall Card

I got two cards made again this weekend!   Two weekends in a row, WOW!  This one is uber simple, but I kind of like it.
 I used a basic white card base  and added a strip of polka dot paper from Paper Studio.  The pumpkin is a digi stamp from Designed 2 Delight, colored with my Dual Tip brush pens from Hobby Lobby.  I used pink marker to color through the middle to highlight that area, then orange over it.  In the pictures you can really see the pink, but in reality the pink just looks like a lighter orange and it blends in just like I wanted it to.  I just tilted my laptop backward and the picture went black, but the pink turned flourescent!  :)  I'm entertained so easily! :p   On with the post....
The sentiment stamp is from Autumn Leave Clear Stamps and is part of the goodies I won from Circle B.  I inked the stamp with green marker and then used a yellow marker to add a little highlighting to it.  The stamp actually says "All Natural Beauty", but I wanted to follow a card recipe that required a 2 word sentiment and I like the generality of the sentiment this way.

Again, thank you for coming by and I hope you have a great week!
