Challenges by AR Challenge 5 - Autumn or Halloween!

It's time for another fun template challenge over on Challenges by AR.
Challenge 5 is sponsored by My Grafico!

Click on over to Challenges by AR and find out what you can win just by posting a project to this challenge!
I chose the darling Jack-O-Box template as my design inspiration and 3 papers from My Grafico Spooktacular collection.  Because the digi paper is printed on one side, I covered the inside of my pumpkin with a second paper design from the same collection that I printed on regular printer paper.  The outside of the  pumpkin is printed on photo paper that has a matt finish.  I chose a third paper design for the leaves and they are also printed on photo matt paper.
To create the face, I cut out the openings on my template only and traced the face onto my pattern paper.  I used a Zig pen to color in the eyes, nose and mouth!  Instead of cutting the handle as per the template, I just punched a hole!  The pumpkin face is distressed with Ranger Distress Rusty Hinge and faux stitched using a black .05 Zig pen (found in most craft stores and online).  The leaves were layered with two thicknesses of foam mounting tape to create dimension.  I punched two bats out of glitter paper with a Martha Stewart punch.  The bow is adorned with an epoxy flower from Webster's Pages.  Black tulle is stuffed inside the pumpkin to create filling.
Hope you like my creation and you get a chance to stop by Challenges by AR to see what the rest of the Challenge by AR team has created!  I'd love to see you play along too!
