Happy Halloween card

Good day

Very proud and honored to have been invited to be Guest Dt for Crafting by Design Challenge
The theme is Halloween

I also displayed this card for Herazz Scrapbooking store 

I purchased these dies and stamps  and could not wait 
any longer to play with them.  For the background I used Impression Obsession
 Create a background stamp called Branches
the stamp is 5.75" x 5.75".  
I stamped with black archival ink on Ranger's Specialty stamping 
paper and used Distress inks in Wild Honey,
Scattered straw, Rusty hinge and Black soot

The Black archival ink on this paper adds a shimmer, which is cool

I used the stamps and matching Sizzix Thinlits dies

They are colored with copics
Pumpkins: YR68, YR65, YR61, T3
Bird left:  YR27, YR24, YR21
Bird right: YR27, TY24, YR21, BV04, BV02, T3, T1
Hats: T9, T7, T5, T3, T1

For these 2 crazy birds, I added Glossy accents to the pumpkins 
and movable little eyes picked up at the dollar store
