Newton's Perfect Pumpkin

 Happy Monday!  Welcome to Day #1 of the
Newton's Nook September Releases!
Newton has been at it again and you're sure to
love he and his friends in all of their adorableness :)

Today we're featuring "Newton's Perfect Pumpkin"

My sample card made with this sweet stamp set:
I love that you get to decide what kind of face (or no face) that you'd
like for Newton's pumpkin to have!  I colored the stamped image with watercolor pencils
and dressed up the card with new patterned papers and enamel dots by
Doodlebug Design and a swatch of ribbon and jute by May Arts.
