Hey Pumpkin !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GBT Raise the Bar

Good morning to you all
Today I get to show you something that I really enjoyed creating for not just one reason but two

This creation was made in the main with lovely goodies received from the awesomely talented and super generous America and secondly I was asked if I would be a Guest Bar-Tender at

where their theme is

Hey Pumpkin
Use any pumpkin image to play along

So here is my GBT creation 
I made an easel card, where that new nestie die towers above.  
So here are the items used from America
lime green mirror paper
all of the designer papers
and items from my own stash
Ribbon, charm, electrical shield, nestie dies and sentiment

Here are some close ups
The electrical shield tape was coloured in black and stretched to make a big web.  The silver pumpkin charm was coloured in lime green to match the base colour papers.  Those sparkly fabulous pumpkin papers all topped off with a lovely HM sentiment on a TH distressed die, but lets not forget that ribbon :) 

The image is coloured in copics and has an AI cob web stamp surround the image just on top of the TH distressing.  The Atyou glitter pens have been used to add extra sparkle to the pumpkin and the stalks and although in real life looks so sparkly my photo's just don't do it justice.

I would like to thank Joni for asking me to create for them this week and do hope you will all hop over and join in the challenge

Hi Hun - gorgeous card. Love your new nestie die. What a fab trick with the electric shield tape, it looks amazing. Know what you mean about the atYou glitter - looks fantastic IRL but when you take a photo it seems to disappear.
