Buttons, Bows or Bangles......{TKJ} {Post #2}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!

This is my second post for if you are looking for my Trendy Twine DT project please click HERE

It is time for a new challenge over at
And this week the challenge is:
Buttons, Bows or Bangles

So for my inspiration today, I made another Halloween card...this one CAS and cute so I hope you like it!
I started my card out using a base of the Light Kraft Cover weight Cardstock and adding a layer of textured white card stock. To give my card some more detail,  I ran the mat through my sewing machine to give it a border. Using  the My Creative Time~ All Around Halloween stamp set, I took the fun sentiment and some  Walnut Stain Distress Ink and "painted" the ink onto my stamp with the brush tip side of the pen.  

Putting the card aside, I started on the cute pumpkin. He is a die cut from  the Cottage Cuts Pumpkin Trio dies and after I cut him out and chalked the edges, I stamped that adorable Peachy Keen face using the PKS~Pumpkin Faces stamp set. I added some white gel pen to the eyes and more chalk to his cheeks. Finally to finish him off I added a green button from my stash and some Earthy Hemp Cord

So there you have it....
my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
As always I have linked all the supplies I used from The Kraft Outlet throughout my description.  If you have not checked out the store yet....make sure you do! There is so much available, the prices are so reasonable and shipping is super fast!!!
