The theme for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is Halloween!  
 I thought and thought all week about what i could do for this weeks project, then all of a sudden, a few hours before i needed to have my project done, it suddenly hit me! this was the card that popped into my head, and i made it pretty close to how i envisioned it.  
here are a few of the things i think are in need of explanation:
the ears are made from the hearts punch, and the black and pink are doubled up, but since the hearts punch is now retired, you could probably substitute the wing from the Bird Builder punch as well.
The head is the Extra Large Oval Punch, the paws the small oval, the nose is from the Owl Builder, the eyes with the cupcake builder for the white part and the Owl Builder for the little black dots, but you can probably draw them in too. the pumpkin made with the Extra Large Oval Punch. His little tail is hand cut.  I used the 1 3/8" circle punch for the Jack-o-lantern mouth, then just cut it a little less than half and cut out notches for the teeth. the eyes and nose are just cut from the corners of scraps.  
I drew in his kitty paws, whiskers and mouth with a white Gel Pen, and used the leaf portion of the Bird Builder punch for the leaves. The letters are made with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die, and the exclamation point was cut by hand. 
I think he turned out pretty cute!
