MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends #28

I made this card for the MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #28 which is to use piercing on our cards. This was done in Taken with Teal and Black, and I used the MFP Thankful Pumpkins and Mum's stamp set and embossed everything in gold. I went around the edges of the black cardstock with a Gold deco pen, and embossed the sentiment, placing it a little to the left and adding some piercing behind it for interest. It was quick and simple to create, but the gold embossing really makes a statement doesn't it?
That's it for me today..........I hope you're all having a great Tuesday!
