Paper Pumpkin

This card uses elements from both the October and November Paper Pumpkin kits.  The plaid background is from the October kit, the greeting and leaves (antlers) are from the November kit.

Rachel Tessman always has very creative alternate projects for the monthly Paper Pumpkin kits and November was no exception.  One of her alternates was to create a reindeer with elements from the kit.  You can see the video HERE.  I don't have the punch Rachel used but I did find some that would do the trick.
