Trick or treat Mr. Pumpkin card

Using lots of new dies and a couple of old too and a cute new Halloween stamp set for the sentiment  I created this fun spooky Halloween card.
I started with a cream color card base folded at the top in the landscape style.  I used my Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes - Stitched rectangle die for the wavy pattern paper layer.  I cut a black mat to layer behind that and another fun Halloween polkadot pattern paper to go between the two for the opening in the center.  The papers are from DCWV.   I used  a Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Three die for the inside cut out.  It is third from the largest in that set.
The fun Mr. Pumpkin head die ... I cut several times, once in orange, once in black, once in purple.  I then trimmed and paper pieced the different colors together and cut a yellow circle that I trimmed down to go behind the Face.  I used some dark chalk to rub over the lines of the pumpkin to give shading.  I used this fabulous die set of spiderwebs to add accents on the card.  On the large web I trimmed the spider off of the web and moved it over to the left-hand side of the card.  For the purple hat band and the bodies of both of the spiders I added clear wink of Stella to give sparkle and shine.  The sentiment Trick or treat is from my newest Halloween stamp set called Happy Pumpkin Day.  I first stamped with a purple pigment ink I then stamped over that with versamark ink and then I heat embossed with clear enamel embossing powder.  I really like how that turned out.  I added some dew drops as accents and this card front is finished.
For the Inside I created the sentiment on my computer.  I cut it out with my Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes - Stitched rectangle die.  I added some stamps using the same stamp set as I did on the front of the card.
