Now, on to my card.  I used the Trick or Treat stamp by stamp designer Monika Ptok Byard. Today's theme was pumpkins, and I had a lot of fun with this one!

To start, I stamped the image on my background paper and only colored the tree limbs and leaves.  Then, I added Stickles on the moon.  While the Stickles were drying, I stamped the image again on to white cardstock and colored it in with my Prismacolor pencils.  Next, I cut our the stamped image, making sure to cut off the limbs since I have already stamped them on the background.

Then, I cut out several layers of "grass" using a grass die and my Cuttlebug.  To create the pumpkin patch, I simply added a couple layers of grass, then added the main image directly over the one that had been previously stamped on the background.  Then, I added the remaining layers of grass and a few smaller pumpkins.

The inspiration for the sentiment was provided by a commercial for Las Vegas that came on TV as I was making this card.  I just couldn't help myself from changing it up a bit. :)
