CIC79 - Too Cute To Spook

Hi! - Wow can you believe it's October already.  We've been enjoying some unseasonably warm weather this week here in (Wally World) aka Walla Walla, WA with temps in the upper 80's but I've heard that's not going to last much longer. Oh well, all good things eventually come to an end.  So did you all enjoy World Card Making day?  I hoped to do a lot more stamping but somehow just managed to make one card and am sharing that with you today for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. 
Look at this fun and sort of spooky Inspiration photo.  Don't you just love the warm glow from the Jack-o-lantern and the rich look of the Chocolate Cupcake.

This week the Sponsor for the CIC challenge is,
Soft Pencil and the prize is a $10 Gift Voucher.

I chose this adorable image from the two that they graciously allowed us to us.  Isn't it just the sweetest.  I colored the image with Prisma Color Pencils and mounted in on Early Espresso cs.  The (Boo) sentiment is from a Basic Grey Halloween set I got last year and was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I added punched photo corners of Tangerine Tango.  I wanted to do something a little "spooky" like the Inspiration photo so I chose some designer paper (Die Cuts With A View) with some cute/scary pumpkins and added a strip of drippy goo (Martha Stewart)  in Early Espresso.  The Old Olive base was embossed with the Pumpkin Embossing folder (EK Success) The brads are from Doodlebug Design.
I used TESC95 for my sketch but did the border piece downward instead so I could use the drippy goo punch. Be sure to stop by the Cupcake Inspiration Blog and check out what the other Sweeties did with the Inspiration photo.  You can also participate by linking back to your card on the CIC Blog.  We'd love to see what you come up with.
Have a wonderful week and Happy Stamping!
