The September Paper Pumpkin from SU had everything needed to make goodie bags for Halloween treats that looked like witches' brooms or haystacks (depending on how you used the kit.)  Since I only needed four, I decided to make cards with the leftover materials. 

The birch trees on the card were actually straws that were to be the broom handles.  After checking out the alternate projects posted on YouTube, I saw someone cut the straws, smooth them down with a bone folder and glue them to a card.  I couldn't resist doing the same thing and attaching them with glue dots to hold them securely.

The pumpkin stamp, Cajun Craze ink and sentiment were provided.  I added the blue ink and the die cut deer.  The slightly curved tree trunks and the brown "grass" give this card a lot of texture.

Stay tuned for more alternatives...I feel a shaker card coming on...

This is amazing, Doris! Love how you used those straws and the deer is a perfect fit!

How creative!! I don't get Paper Pumpkin but a friend does and she gave me her leftovers from this kit - now I know what to do with them!
