TH Nov Tag

Learned a lot making this Tim Holtz Nov Tag. Hardest step for me was the adding of the foil. Part I liked best was the use of the stylus on the back side of the stamped/colored Pumpkin image on the Distress Watercolor cardstock which gives the pumpkin dimension.

Differences between mine and Tim Holtz's which you can see by clicking on the TH challenge below are:
1. Did not have the TH background stamp that looked like burlap/mesh so I used the a muse studio Hexagon Background stamp.
2. Used a non-TH brand of gold foil.
3. Used a non-TH brand of cork material. 
4. Used green/white twine tied on the arrow to resemble pumpkin vine instead of string.
