Card/Gift Box Holder

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Good Morning and Happy Thursday to you! 
I have a fun card/gift box holder to share with you using this freebie file Ruthie over at 
September Ninth has shared with us:) I can see so many possibilities with this file~thanks so much Ruthie!
Here is my project:
After cutting it out with my Cameo I pieced it together with the papers I have chosen. I also added some stitching (very little and not so great) to one of the panels using my sewing machine. I know....gasp! Don't fall over now! I finally decided to use it again~definitely doing baby steps with it, lol! I added one of my favorite techniques to this project which is embossing, which I did the panels with the divine swirls folder for dimension.
I cut the cute pumpkins at 1 3/4 and 2" from the Simply Charmed cartridge and embossed the little stem pieces with the tiny bubbles folder. I also inked around the edges with TH frayed burlap. I stamped the faces with PK294~The Cornie's stamp set and added rosy cheeks with freckles to these cuties.
The sentiment is stamped with My Craft Spot's Best Witches To You stamp set and I tied
orange licorice twine for the bow. I finished by adding some vanilla scented tea lights that I picked up at the store:)
So, what do you think? Cute gift idea, ha?  I know I will be making more of these:)
I am entering this in the following challenges:
