Farewell Halloween

This is the last week for the Great Pumpkin Blog Hop Challenge (week 13) and I am barely getting this in.  I just can't seem to get back in gear again after a truly mojo lazy couple of weeks.  The Paper Players Challenge #119 sketch was also used for this card.

Very Vanilla card stock was used for the base.  Howlstooth and Scaringbone designer paper was matted with Tangerine Tango card stock and added to the card.  I matted a smaller strip of the same paper with Tangerine Tango, added Black Glimmer Brads and attached this to the card.  The pennant was made by attaching Black Scallop Dots Ribbon (used the solid black side) 
to a piece of Tangerine Tango card stock.  I cut out the one end to give it a pennant look and attached it to the card.  The pumpkin from the Jack of All Trades stamp set was heat embossed on Very Vanilla card stock using VersaMark and Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  The face from the same stamp set was heat embossed using black embossing powder mixed with Dazzling Diamonds.  The stem and curly-q (same stamp set) were also heat embossed using Wild Wasabi embossing powder.  The image was punched out with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, matted with a 2-1/2" circle of Tangerine Tango card stock, and popped up on the card with dimensionals.  Really enjoyed this sketch, very clean and simple look.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope everyone came out of the storm okay.  We were very fortunate here.  We had a lot of wind and lost power for only about an hour.  South of us was hit so much harder.  My hope and prayers are that you are all safe and sound and on the way to getting back to normal.
