Trick or Treat Card Challenge

The challenge this time at Cards in Envy is "Trick or Treat". I wanted to make a card to send to Remi for Halloween so this challenge was motivation to get it done.

I had the candy corn paper. The pumpkin I fussy cut out of a paper I bought at my LLS Cat's Creations. It is from the "Goose Bumps" Collection by Reminisce.This specific paper was called "Scary Night". The heart strip on the bottom was a strip from that same paper.  I used my Just Rite alpha stamps to make the sentiment. I used versa mark ink and white embossing powder. I used foam tape to give the pumpkin dimension. I took some twine and colored it black and added to the pumpkin stem. Even though my embossing was a bit messy, (I had an awful time with it!) and I didn't let the ink on the twine dry before tying it and got some black on the paper, I am pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for looking!

Have a good one!
