Simply Sunday challenge

The challenge for this week's Simply Sunday over at Getting Cricky is to use orange and black, only one more color allowed if needed.  Here's my take on this one:

A little interesting story of how this one came about----
I was looking through my scraps to complete the "Lovely Trees" card when I found this orange piece of cardstock already stamped with this nice pumpkin image.  The piece was just about right to trim it up and square it off and finish out to an A2 card.  It was just there in my scraps, waiting for me to find it!

 This shot shows off the little bit of bling better.  I added the "Grateful" stamp from Studio G, two black eyelets and some black ribbon from Wal-Mart.  The finishing touch was 2 pieces of bling with my I-Rock and the little rhinestones are from Spare Parts Embellishments.

Now here's the thing.....I don't know where this pumpkin stamp came from or how it came to be on my scrap paper!  I don't have this stamp and I looked through the stamps we have at work in our scrapbook supplies and I don't find it.   If anyone recognizes this stamp, PLEASE tell me where it comes from.  I think I would like to get it.  I'm wondering if this piece of scrap was actually in with some paper I bought at a yard sale maybe. 

Anyway, I finished out the inside with a piece of cream cardstock, the edges inked with black.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you like the card! 

I'm entering it in the following challenges:

More Than Favors Wacky Wednesday - anything goes
