RetroSketch Monday {Boo Pumpkins}

I took full advantage of the quiet Monday morning around here. I sent my kids off to school and hubby off to work and even gave the puppy a new bone to chew on! SO, I got busy with some crafty time.  

Extra BONUS.....I  ran across my old stash of CD's and listened to some of my FAVE tunes from my college days. It was a Depeche Mode Monday for me. YEAH!

I used this week's Retro Sketch and the fabulous PRIMITIVE PUMPKINS stamp set and matching Primitive Pumpkins Die-namics  from MFT and came up with this Halloween card. Love the new MFT card stock. I used Black Licorice, Kraft, and Orange Fizz to coordinate with my pretty pattern paper (by SU!). 

In place of the scallops from the sketch, I stitched on some HARLEQUIN Die-namics. I think it works well with all the diagonal lines from the pattern paper. I stamped the sentiment along the top and added a few staples for another embellie. I like using staples and twine when I distress the edges of my paper. 

Check out this week's Retro sketch. The team over there has great samples, too!
