Whimsie Doodles Inspiration Challenge

This month's inspiration challenge at Whimsie Doodles was to create a card inspired by this photo:
http://shimandsons.typepad.com/.a/6a00d834529fce69e20133f55dad74970b-pi

I took my inspiration from the color scheme - mostly white with just a touch of black, orange and green (and I added a smidgeon of purple).


I used the Whimsie Doodles Halloween Tags digi images to make these cards.  I inked around the edges and colored the pumpkins with Copic markers, then added a grommet and some ribbons and twine.  I printed the tag a second time, only this time with the answer to the riddles and then adhered the two tags on the left side to make a card.

And, just in case you're wondering, here are the answers to the riddles:
1) What did the pumpkin need for its boo boo?

     A pumpkin patch!

2) What do ghosts wear?

     Boo jeans!
