BEATE'S CHALLENGE TAKE TWO

Okay, so by now you know I was not thrilled with the way my purple card for Beate's challenge came out - so I decided to do another one using a Halloween theme! I chose a square card this time because it is my favorite to work with and I don't much like the longs ones.....I am not sure why, I just don't. So, here is my pumpkin card! I stamped the pumpkin, then stamped it again and popped it up on dimensionals. I used some of that wonderful new Halloween paper from SU! and I layered this card quite a bit! The ribbon is from my stash so I am not sure where I got it (sorry!). I used my small scallop circle punch and punched holes all around it to give it some texture. I am much happier with this card than the first one - I hope you all enjoy it too! Can you believe Halloween is RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER - SHEESH!! That means Christmas is not too far behind - where does the time go??!!

Card Recipe:
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Creepy Crawly Designer Series
Stamp Sets: Year after Year, Batty for You, Party Punch Hostess Set
Accessories: Black Brads, Ribbon, Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch,
1/16th punch, Dimensionals, Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink, Black Stazon,
