I used a thin sheet of bronze metal (bought at a local scrapbook store) and stamped the pumpkin onthe back of it. Then, I put the metal on an old mouse pad (or anything soft) and using a dry embossing stylus and traced over the lines that I stamped. when you flip the metal over, you can see the outlined image of the stamp. I double stick taped it to the card.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
