Witching Hour at Ooh La La

I was inspired by my fellow teamie Wynn  - who is also on the Ooh La La Design Team - to enter their new Challenge  - #168.  I loved the image Wynn had used so I popped my copy of 'Say it With Words' into the drawer to look at the same folder. Obviously I couldn't use the same image but I fell in love with Background paper No:4 and wanted to use it.
As I have been stitching recently and was still in the mood I went to my folder of patterns (and I have bought quite a few) and found some wonderful ones for Halloween.
I chose the one I wanted to use.  But I didn't want to use white card as the background which is more usual for stitch cards so I scanned the background paper into my ACDSee Graphic programme and made a piece of card in the same colour range but plain and paler.
Here is my card.

The great Halloween table confetti that I have used was sent to me by one of the members of UKSN that I belong to and I have enjoyed using them as embellishments.
I hope you like my pumpkin.
