Halloween FUN at Cut It Up Challenge

Hello, everyone!  Welcome by today.  You'll be glad you stopped by my blog if you've been making any Halloween cards because there's a fun new challenge starting today over at Cut It Up where you can share your Halloween cards.  Of course, at Cut It Up Challenge Blog, you always need to use at least one die-cut on your card.  Hence, the name "cut it".  LOL  We all love using our dies most of the time anyone, right?  I do hope you'll come play along in this FUN challenge.
I used several die-cuts on this card.  I started with basic black cardstock and layered that with orange Bazzill cardstock.  Next, I used white watercolor paper and a Taylored Expressions frame die-cut to cut the frame.  I inked it all up with Tim Holtz Oxide Inks and ran some black seam binding across the bottom and tied a bow.  I used a Simon Says Stamp die-cut called Circle Loops to make my pumpkins.
I used Green Grass, Pumpkin and Marmalade Tim Holtz Oxide Inks to create my background.  The googly eyes are vintage, and the sentiment is from Paper Sweeties.  That's about it.  Thanks again for stopping by today.  Don't forget to stop by Cut It Up Challenge Blog to share your Halloween cards.  We all look forward to seeing what you've been creating as Halloween approaches.
I'm playing along here:

Two Old Bats Challenge Blog - October: Halloween Fun - This is my 3rd and final entry this month in this challenge.  It's FUN making Halloween cards, but I don't normally make them any other time of the year than Halloween, so I'm happy and excited to play along when I can.

The Inspiration Station - Challenge #40 - Harvest - See Photo Below - I was inspired by the PUMPKINS and the combination of orange/green.
