Spooktacular

Happy Monday friends!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  A little dreary here, but the beautiful fall colors made up for it! :0) 

Halloween is just around the corner, and although my girls are older now (17, 21, & 23), I still give them Halloween cards and treats.  And yes, I do decorate a little bit for Halloween too...mostly outside though. (have to make it festive for the little ones that come looking for treats!)  So here's one of the cards I made for this year:

 
 
Isn't this cat a hoot?  She is a new stamp from Stampin' Up called "Frightening Feline".  I stamped her in black and cut her out with a Spellbinders circle die, and then layered her with the Spellbinders scalloped die in black.  I used Stampin' Up's Wisteria Wonder card stock and SU's "Print Pattern" background stamp for the upper half of the card (I believe this is a retired stamp now), and then DP for the bottom half .  I used a strip of black gross grain ribbon in the middle of the card and added PTI's "Spooktacular" sentiment at the bottom of the card.  I also added a couple wiggle eyes to the cat and a few black half backed pearls under the sentiment.  Also sponged around the edges of everything on the card with the Wisteria Wonder ink... LOVE the finished look that spongeing gives! :0)

That's all for today and I'll be back tomorrow with a Christmas Lily of the Valley card.  Thanks for checking in...love it when you do!
