Halloween is growing event here in the UK but sending cards maybe isn't high on the list, having cute photos and collecting sweets are probably more important.

Lets be honest it's good fun making Halloween cards and I had this idea to make an actual pumpkin card. I decided to use the Echo Park Celebrate Autumn perfect colours. I used the Simon says Stamp Stitched Oval cutting three ovals, you overlap two of them and place the third in the centre.

Rather than have a green stalk I decided to use a Witches hat using the Simon says Stamp If the Hat fits I discovered I had rather a lot of space and decided it needed a sentiment which is why I used the Simon says Stamp Stitched Banners with their Hey Pumpkin stamps.

I couldn't just stick a banner on so I got out my new Tim Holtz Thinlits called Funky Foliage and using the Echo Park papers made a couple of Toadstools.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

What a great idea to use the ovals to make that wonderful looking pumpkin Debby, and the witches hat looks great as a substitute for the stalk, and the cute toadstools too, and the patterned paper with the sentiment on works well also, and I love those two colours together. I would never have thought to make it like this so well thought out and a great design. x
