Swashbuckling Elliot

This is the first time ever that I went out of my comfort zone and used a gray color as the base of my card. Have you ever used gray? As I was layering all my pieces, it just seemed to go better with the colors than black. This cardstock is actually a doublemates so the other side is black. The stamp is a new one that was just released from Dandelion Designs. The pumpkin is another new stamp that I inked and cut out and put in Elliot's hand.And since I just had to use my MS punch, I punched a spiderweb for the background. It takes 2 punches to make this. One for the corners and one for the borders.
Hope you're having a wonderful humpday and thank you for stopping by!

Elliot is so cute! I love this card. You're going to have to show me how to use my MS punches...I had such a hard time trying to figure out how to do this corner punch with the border punch. I'll bring it tomorrow!! Would it work on any size paper?
