Step 7:

According with the stamps and colors of card stock that you used you can enhance some details using additional colors of Memento Ink. In my sample, I used purple card stock and three different colors of Memento Ink: Grape Jelly around the card, Tangelo for the Center and Paris Dusk for the corners.

Step 8:

To embellish the card, you can use a coordinated die cut. I am using a witch die that I cut onto Silver Metallic cardstock three times. I layered pasted all the die cut images with On Point Glue to add more dimension. And as final touch, I gave an additional color to the face on the pumpkin using Memento Dual Tip Markers.
