Throwback Thursday Challenge!

This week's challenge is to use an older cartridge with a card feature and include a Halloween theme. I love Emma's challenges, it's always great to use those older cartridges and find a fun new image you might not have tried before.
I decided on the Wild Card Cartridge and used the pumpkin card cut at 4 1/2" (note: the envelope won't cut that large on a 12x12 mat though). I cut the card image twice so that there would be a black background against the orange pumpkin. I embossed the back of the card with a pumpkin/vine Cuttlebug embossing folder and the green layers with the Swiss Dots folder. Kept the details simple with a bit of stitching and stickles. The sentiment is from My Creative Time's "Mixed Holiday Sentiment" stamp set. This set is perfect for fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas too.
Hope you're having a great Saturday. Sara is at a soccer tournament with dad, so Seth and I are home for a bit getting some projects done.
