Trick or Treat....Pumpkin Gift Set......{TKJ Color Challenge}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
 The Kraft Journal!

And this week the challenge is:
 A Color Challenge
And here is my take on it.....
A few weeks ago I posted a Pumpkin Spice Creamer recipe/gift card (you can see the original post HERE) and wanted to finish another gift set to send to a friend. 

I used both the colors and the picture of the pumpkins as my inspiration. I started out my card using a piece of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and added my layers of pattern paper using Simple Stories~ Take a Hike paper pack. After adding my signature machine stitching border, I wrapped some Kraft Wraphia Ribbon around the mat and tied it in a simple knot. Then using a White X-Small Tag and some Chit Chat Seasonal Word Stickers added "trick or treat" to the tag.  I then went ahead and using some Brown Earthy Hemp Cord , tied the tag to the Kraft Wrapia Ribbon
To finish up my card, I die cut a scalloped circle using the Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and stamped the cute pumpkin on white cardstock for the center of the scallop. 
To match my card, I made this beautiful decorated mason jar filled with the Pumpkin Spice Creamer. I used the same Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock  and designer papers, wrapped more of the Kraft Wrapia Ribbon around the lid of the jar and made a matching pumpkin tag that I tied onto the jar using some of the Brown 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!!!
