Here's Pumpkin PigWit...

Pumpkin PigWit

and you get all of those sentiments too! :)

Here's my card...

The spotty paper is from my Mabel pad (My Mind's Eye; Stella & Rose), and the striped is a scrap off an old sheet of paper by Chatterbox, I think the collection was called Chateau.

As you can see, I've used one of the sentiments that you get for free with this image.

I made my embellishment. I punched out 3 hearts and then used a pair of torn edge scissors, trimming away at the edges of the hearts. I sponged them and then coloured in the centres with my markers. I shaped them slightly by pushing gently with the end of a pen onto a foam mat. Then finished with some tendrils, which were just thin strips of cardstock wrapped around a pen, then I took the coil off the pen and pulled to loosen slightly to create the curls.

I'm entering this card at:
