The Play Date Cafe Challenge #2

Hi everyone!

Here's my submission for challenge #2 at The Play Date Cafe. What a BEAUTIFUL color combo this week. I haven't had my fill of pumpkins yet, obviously! The pumpkins are made of scalloped ovals I cut on with the Cuttlebug and Nestabilities dies. I stamped each oval with an autmn spray stamp and then sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink before assembling them into pumpkins. The "grass" was a scrap I found in my stash, and the leaves were punched from card stock and then I used my paper piercing tool to add some texture. Oh the little crystal moon was something I found in my stash too. The background is just black card stock run through the Cuttlebug with the swirls embossing folder.
