Happy Haunting


Today I have another Halloween card to share. I cut the tag with my Cricut, and added some I.O. die-cut ghosts, along with some stamped bats done with 2 Judith stamps in white and Brilliance inks. I added some wink of stella glitter to a few bats, and tied some lavender ribbon to the top, after edging the tag with white. The smoky slate background was embossed with a SU! ef and sponged with black ink, and the apple green card base was from my stash. The ribbon is retired SU!, and the sentiment was computer generated. The finishing touch was a stamped cat from MFP.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Color Coordinates - Black, Slate, Orange Peel, Green Apple,                                                            Lavender.

Scrapy Land #4 - Use a die sold in their store (Impression Obsession) with a                               Halloween theme.

Tuesday Throwdown #218 - Photo-inspired Halloween colors.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Great card, Carol. I see you have made many beautiful cards while I was away.
At first glance, I thought your ghosts were done with the inlaid technique. They are so cute...love your ribbon, too.
