I Did it Creations Challenge

This week at I Did it Creations our challenge is Halloween. Our sponsor for this week is Glitterbabe. She provided us with this lovely pumpkin image. I can't believe I used four different patterned papers on one card. That is really unlike me. It's hard to tell on this picture but I distressed the edges using a pair of decorative scissors. If you open the scissors up and use the edge of them to run across the edge of the paper it is an easy way to control the distressing and less possibility of cutting yourself with an open pair of scissors because they aren't as sharp. For some reason, I can get the corners better distressed with decorative scissors than with regular ones. Plus too, you can use those scissors for something and justify having them in your stash.
For this card, I put the ribbon under the white web looking die cut just for something different. The moon is covered in yellow Stickles and the hat is outlined with black with purple on the....belt(?) of it. I don't think that's the correct word but it's all I can come with at this point. (If you know what to call it to leave me a comment so I can correct myself. Thanks). I don't have a good combination to make black with my Copic markers and so I thought it needed a little something to make it look better.
Anyway, I think I have gabbed enough. A list of supplies is below the photo. Thanks for stopping by.
