I like to re-cycle things for my cards whenever I can and it is appropriate - as you can see I cut the background shape from an old card back - it embossed really well and the card is kind of glossy so that's nice, and the logo in the middle was covered by my punch art - why don't you give it a go? (The card fronts were sent to kindergarten for the children to do artwork with them as well.)
No room for a sentiment on the first card, but I did manage to incorporate on in the second card.
I don't have any stamps or papers with Halloween images so I had to make my own pumpkins with punches.
So here is the Recipe

Halloween or Fall Theme
