Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge #28

I'm entering this card into the KS Crew Challenge this time. Makiko's Trick or Treat Challenge sounded like way too much fun, and I LOVE using my new pumpkin stamp set!!

At the Houston workshop, Makiko provided us with cardstock that was already 'colored' around the edges. I wouldn't call it distressed since this looks much more refined, and I like the style very much.

Connie, one of the other KS Crew members told us how she made her very, very pretty bows! I've been playing around with those since we got back, and found a way to make them, too!

Here is the inside view of the card.

I used lots of inks since the pumpkins are some lighter, and some darker - as you know, no pumpkin is ever identically colored!!

One trick I did discover - when stamping the faces, I used a double stamping of More Mustard to get the background 'yellow', and then the black face on top. It really gave the look of depth.

I used some of my DCWV paper for the sparkly pumpkin background and used the Pumpkin Harvest embossing folder on the other side.
