Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone! This is absolutely my favorite time of year... Fall is in the air and we've finally had some cooler mornings to wake up to! ;) It's time for another fun challenge over at My Crafting Stories and I'm happy to share my DT inspiration card for Challenge #10 - Fall/Halloween. Our fabulous sponsor is The Paper Shelter, so come on over and play!

I chose the 'Adorable Halloween Witch' for my Halloween card, and isn't she absolutely adorable?! I kept with the traditional purple, green, orange and yellow color combination with some black layers on the hand-cut fishtail banners.

I pulled out some fun striped and dotted papers to go with the Halloween-themed colors of cardstock. I absolutely love vertical sentiments so I stamped on one of the banners. And, of course, I added my fat fluffy signature bow, this time with a little gold cording looped behind it. Also played with some Crystal Drops!

I kept the inside simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel. Sometimes less IS more, lol! ;)

Happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Paper and More White, Black, Purple, Orange and Green cardstock, GKD Wild Dandelion cardstock, Stampin' Up! Regals DSP stack
