Pumpkins & Paper Piercing

Halloween is creeping closer! Are you getting ready? My daughter is already planning her costume. Right now, she is asking to be Medusa. I need to try to figure out how to make Medusa-like snake hair. (If you have any ideas, let me know! I’m sure I’ll be combing the internet in the next few weeks.)

Keeping in the Halloween spirit, I made a card using the new Pumpkin Pile image to make a card for the new Meljen’s Designs challenge, PAPER PIERCING. (not paper piecing). I know it doesn’t show up very well in the photo, but I pierced along the edges of both pieces of DP.

Stop by the Meljen’s Designs blog to see the creations from the rest of the DT and join in our PAPER PIERCING challenge.

This is so cute, love the pumpkins and the boo at the bottom and I do see the paper piercing on the side. The distressing is perfect with the card. Love it.

What a precious card! Love the image. Good luck on coming up with snake hair. How about hot glueing rubber snakes to a bathing cap?
