Halloween crafting and card making

I have a friend with a birthday on halloween and another friends birthday was Friday but she loves Halloween, so there are their birthday cards and then I made a Halloween card. All stamps are from the Wicked stamp set from Close to my Heart. I adore their stamps. Used cholocate CTMH destressing in for the broom and stamped first in black and then in purple for the witches. I absolutely love this witch. She is so chic! So, for one friends birthday I made her a witch and pumpkin garland.  I made bunch of pumpkins out of paper towel roll I had been saving. I flattened it andthen cut in 1/2 inch strips. I used 6 strips for each  pumpkin and cut and folded some leftoved bits to make the stem. all was hot glued after each was painted and paint had dried.  I used garden twine to string it on. This was a pretty fast project and it was definitely fun.Around the witched I sponge dapped purple and off white chalk in and chocolate ctmh destress ink. I sanded around all edges and inked with purple.
