Angie's Card



My card was made with Lawn Fawn's Plaid Paper Fall pack,  Gina Marie Designs Nesting Wonky Rectangle dies and Newton's Nook Happy Thoughts stamp set.  I don't have a lot of pumpkin stamps, so I tried to use what I had to create and the pumpkin for this card.  It was actually made with a circular wreath stamp from Newton's Nook Happy Thoughts stamp set.  I flattened the circle shape out a little before stamping it, then added pumpkin features with a black marker and added the stem to the top.  
   





Our Second Sponsor is Sparkle N Sprinkle

Peggy's Card
I used "Witchy Gerty" digitalstamp from Sparkle n Sprinkle for this card.  The sentiment is also from the same file.  The spider web card is a file from Cricut Design Space.  I must admit this card was waaaay out of my comfort zone.
