Trick or treat pumpkin card

Today I have a scary looking Halloween card for you.  I wanted to create the pumpkin all in black to give it a Silhouette off in the distance look that's glowing from the inside.   This is another fun take on the sketch over at your next stamp sketch challenge.
The background pattern paper is from Elegant Witch Mat Pad - Martha Stewart
The rest of the pattern pieces are all Halloween Scraps
I used my stitched banner die for the bottom Grey layer.
I used a stitched rectangle die for the purple plaid layer.
I created a black stitched frame with two of my square stitch Stax dies, I then cut a pattern scrap with the smaller of the stitched dies to inset as a background for the pumpkin.
I then placed the spooky black pumpkin with the hat inside the box and decided to go ahead and add yellow insets for the eyes, nose and mouth.  At this time (last minute lol) I decided to incorporate a little more yellow to pull the card together so I got out my YNS scallop edge die, placing under the plaid layer at the top and bottom.
I stamped trick or treat and heat embossed with fine detail white powder, that sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas - Frightfully Cute stamp set.

I will be entering into this fun challenges:
