Halloween Duo

This weeks' challenge at Less is More (week 84) is the dreaded one layer card challenge.  It is dreaded by me because I literally have to stop myself from adding layers and bling and ribbon.  But I persevere with these challenges mainly because it is a challenge, and that's the whole point of it...and because the more I do them, the easier they seem each time.  :)

So here is my one layer card:

I painted the circle freehand with Twinkling H2O's (Ginger Peach) then stamped a Skipping Stones Design pumpkin onto it with StazOn ink.  This is a set from 2006, I think it's retired.  I then painted the pumpkin with Spiced Pumpkin Twinkling H2O's and the leaves with Green Tea.  The sticker is from Jack-o-Lantern from SRM.

My next project is for the challenge at CAS-ual Friday Blog (CFC 69) to use embossing on your card/project.

The tube is from SRM.  patterned paper is from Echo Park, The tag is an old one I found in my drawer from Cuttlebug.  It has the die cut and the embossing folder together making it so easy to use.  I embossed a second tag, painted it with Ginger Peach, cut it out and adhered it with foam adhesive on the tag.  The jute twine is from May Arts and I even set an eyelet for haven't used my eyelets for a long time.

Here is the set.  Fun project to do.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you're having a good start to the week.

Both the tag and card are wonderful! So brave of you to do the one-layer thing. I find them difficult.
