Copper Embossed Halloween Card

I finally am ready to start THINKING about fall. Although I do hate to see summer go, this cute Halloween set caught my eye today.  I decided to make a background stamp of almost the whole collection of stamps in this set. I placed them on my card the way I wanted them and then took my large acrylic block and set them over the stamps so I could keep my arrangement.

I added some fall flower sequins and a strip of purple cardstock (leftover from my first Halloween card).  I corner chomped the corners of the notecard and that is it!  It is a tad simple, but I think the copper embossing powder helps to give it more interest.

If I were to do this again, I think I would stamp this background on a piece of cardstock and then add it to a notecard with a banner sentiment across the card front. It would add some dimension and make it a bit more detailed, since I think it has a bit too much black showing.
