Pumpkin Fun

Hi friends,
It's that most wonderful time of year once again! Yes... PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE IS BACK AT STARBUCKS!!! Yaaaaay! (that's what you were thinking, right???) Ohhhh, I luv me some PSL- so yummy! Well, it's also Halloween time, which is another of my fav times of the year. It's fun, and best of all, there's loads of chocolate to be found :)
So for my first card of the season, I thought I'd start with a bang...er... make that a POP!

Here's the outside:
 (The binder clip is just to hold the card closed.) This cutie is a digi stamp called Pumpkin Marcy from La La Land Crafts. The pumpkins beside her are from the set Carved & Candlelit from SU.

Here's a closer peek:

Now for the innies:
POP!!!
 It's an XL pumpkin growing in front of that haunted house!

Here's a side peek:

A closer peek:
 You might have noticed it's made from one of my fav dies- the 3D ball. I have definitely gotten my money's worth with this die cuz I've made lots of different things with it :) I added flower soft for the soil & the leaves are a Spellbinders border die (that I picked up on clearance ;) The grass was made with the MS grass die.


Yes, it does fold down flat & all the parts lie flat too :) as the beautiful hand model is showing you...
I'll be adding a sign/sentiment later once I figure out who it's going to! My son's teacher? My grammy??  IDK (as my son will text). Hehehe.

I used Carly's sketch for my card:
I'll also be playing along with the following challenges:
