A Halloween Card and an Announcement!

I have another Halloween card to show you. I have to confess I love the colors of Halloween, I love candy, and I love vintage Halloween images, but it's very rare for me to SEND out a Halloween card. I have a stack of them that just sit in a bin. I did send a few this year as I needed to send out some RAK prizes, so I used up some Halloween cards. The poor, sad things.

For this card, I used some of the fabbie Graphic45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland papers, plus the NEW Core'dinations Graphic45 card stock.

This card is my best effort at "clean and simple." Not a style I do very well, but I am always attracted to it. Opposites attract? I used a circle punch to "carve out" the corners of the images. Pretty, cool, right?!

I love using the Spellbinders dies to create tabs for stamping a sentiment. This label die is a perfect shape, when cut in half, don't you think! I stamped the greeting with Stampin' Up Whisper White - my all time favorite white ink!

The inside greeting is Hero Arts. I also used the Martha Stewart icicles sort of looks like some dripping ick, right? And more of that fab Core'dinations card stock.

Challenges I am entering:
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Something Spooky
Simon Says Stamp - Punch 'Em, plus Hero Arts stamps

Now, for my ANNOUNCEMENT! I have been asked to be one of the NEW Sundae Girls at the Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog! Is that cool or what?! It's a very fun challenge blog, with a new challenge each Sunday. I start my term in November, so keep an eye out. They always have a nice prize up for grabs, plus they have a top three blinkie! I hope you check it out!
