Pumpkin Carving Ants

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring this weeks Send a Smile for Kids  challenge with the theme 'anything goes'!  Such a versatile theme, do hope you take a look and decide to participate. I have wanted to make a card  with this adorable image since it's release Sept 5th. I used an outline  image from  Doodle Pantry's   'Pumpkin Carving Ants' stamp set . This stamp set contains coloured images, outlines ,digital papers and sentiments.I choose my own papers and left the sentiment for inside the card.  I colored the image using Prismacolor markers and inked the clouds with 'bashful blue' Stampin' Up ink. It's a fun stamp set , love it!
