Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge

Your Next Stamp is sponsoring the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge (create a Halloween themed card or treat bag) and I was lucky enough to get to play along with their DT! They generously sent me a whole package of different ribbons and I picked 3 to use with my treat bag. Here it is:

I know you can tell the jute string on the top is one of them, but what about the other 2? Of course the only other possibilities are the pumpkins and their leaves! I just cut 2 pumpkins off the string, colored the stems with a brown Copic marker, and glued a single leaf to the back of each. I think they're such cute little embellishments!!

BTW, did you also notice anything interesting about the stamp I used? Recognize it as another alteration of Easter Bunny Fhiona?

I altered her once before and had such fun that I knew I had to try it again! I stamped Fhiona, colored her with Copics and cut her out, leaving off the bunny ears and basket. Then I just drew a simple pair of cat ears, colored and cut them out and stuck them on the back of her head. To really make her into a cat, I cut little bits of black sewing thread and glued them to her face for whiskers.

Here's a close shot so you can see her a little better:

Final details - I created the bag with the Make the Cut software and the grass on the bottom was made with a Die-Namics die from My Favorite Things.

This is also for the following challenges: We'd love for you to play along! You could win a $10 gift certificate for YNS or Really Reasonable Ribbon! Please see their challenge post for all the details. TFL!
