Three Challenge Halloween

I challenged myself with three challenges on this card:  Pals Paper Arts #114, Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #4 and Monday Monster Mash Halloween Countdown Week #9.

The card base is Pumpkin Pie card stock.  I ran the front of the card through the Big Shot with the Spider Web embossing folder.  I stamped the hat from the Jack of All Trades stamp set on Rich Razzleberry card stock with Rich Razzleberry ink.
I matted the top and bottom with Lucky Limeade card stock.  This layer was added to a strip of Lucky Limeade card stock.  Pumpkin Pie ribbon was tied around this layer with a knot and a Rich Razzleberry brad was added over the knot.  This was all attached to the card front.  The pumpkin was made by 
punching out three ovals from Pumpkin Pie card stock, sponging the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink and attaching them together.  I stamped the stem from the same stamp set with Lucky Limeade ink on the same color card stock, cut it out and attached is to the top of the pumpkin.  The face was stamped on a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock with VersaMark and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I punched it out with a circle
punch, sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink and attached it with dimensionals.  Dimensionals were then used to attach the pumpkin to the card.  I'm glad you stopped by today.
