Hi there! Today's post is going to be for two challenges. The first is for the Freshly Made Sketches #46 and the second is for Dynamic Duo color challenge #14 using Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi.  Here's my card.

I didn't realize until I was finished that the main part of the card was smaller than an A2 size, so I when I was finished I mounted the back of the white cardstock to a single piece of  5 1/2" X 4 1/4" pumpkin pie and scallop punched the edge to match. 
The front is embossed with the chevron EF, layered with a piece of scalloped wasabi, then another piece of  pumpkin Polka Dot Parade DSP.  The next two layers are cut with the Labels Framelits. I stamped the images from "Out on a Limb" and colored with markers. 
I stamped the new 7/8" cotton ribbon with a sentiment from "Wicked Cool" and flagged the ends, then added a button to finish the front. When I was all done I went back and gave my kitty a few green rhinestone eyes. What do you think? 
Here's a peek at the inside. 

Well I really liked the "SPOOKY" on the cotton ribbon, so I stamped a few more. Then I decided to make some treat bags and used the new "Howlstooth & Scaringbone" DSP. Love that stuff! 
I used the labels framelit for my base and three of the scallop circle punches (old and new sizes) to layer the Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP, and pumpkin and black card stock. 
I'm sure I'll be using a LOT of both this DSP and cotton ribbon. 
I stamped the little owl from Out on a Limb in white and used a black marker to polka dot the pumpkin scallop circle. I used sticky strip to attach the cotton ribbon between the DSP and card stock circles. 

Thanks so much for Stopping by and I hope you leave a comment to let me know what you think.

SO stinkin' cute, Diane! I love the little scene you created on the card and the green sparkly eyes are such a fantastic touch. The chevron embossing looks so fresh and fun with the polka dots/scallops. I do see some Reeses in those treat absolute favorite. But your fun wrapping would almost make me not want to open the bag. Too cute! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Dynamic Duos! :) Big hugs!
