Spooky?? Pumpkins

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! I'm still running around like crazy. It must be a weird law of physics or something, but somehow I can get 3 days behind in only 1 day. How does that happen? This card has to take a little of the blame. It took forever to come together. As for spooky...I don't know. These guys are more goofy than anything. I have no clue as to why I thought it would be a good idea to split them in two. After I did that, I spent probably an hour trying to figure out how to arrange them. 2 of something in most cases doesn't look as pleasing as 3 of something. So I have a tiny little greeting underneath (no room for anything larger). 

After coloring & die cutting the pumpkins, I matted them on larger black squares and added a stacked die cut button to sort of "join" them. I had this fun orange/black polka dot ribbon but the orange was too light so I took a darker orange Copic and colored over the dots. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
stamps: Peculiar Pumpkin Patch, Halloween Brewed by (for the greeting)
paper: white, black, orange
ink: Memento tuxedo black
accessories: Copic markers, ribbon, Spellbinders squares & scalloped borders 3 dies, word window punch (McGill), button & scallop button dies (Memory Box)
