Another HM Halloween Card

Not sure if we are allowed to enter more than one card in the HM Challenge or not but I thouhgt I would at least post this one here 'cause I actually like how it turned out! I always loved carving pumpkins as a kid and with my kids while they grew up but now no one does it any more. Sooooo....I got this idea to "carve " a pumpkin face on a card! What do you think?
   (I sent an email to America at HM and she says its OK to enter another card! So I will!)
The main cardstock is kraft and the orange on the inside has been inked with white, yellow and orangge ink using the Tim Holtz blending tool. The HM stamp is "Feelin' Rosey" (Maxwell minus the teacup!).
I really do love the teacup but I keep finding things that would be so cute to see him peeking over the edge of...I just can't resist! Had to try it!
The "Trick or Treat" stamp and the sparkley flower and the "Twinkle Jewels" are all from StampingScrapping.com. And so is the "Happy Halloween" and the little ghost on the inside.
Leaves and green wire are from my stash.
Entering this one in:
(use black, orange, yellow and green)
I took these pictures on my deck which is totally covered with leaves right now. We live in a woods and because its so windy today it is just raining leaves!
Here's a picture of my "back yard":

I hope you are all having a lovely day, wherever you are and whatever season it is for you! God bless!
