31

My card today is one I made for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #85.  I decided to pull out one of my favorite WMS stamp sets - Halloween Party - and make a halloween card:

This is an awesome sketch and I really had fun making this card.  I probably went a little crazy with the distressing tool, but I think it really adds the finishing touch the card needed.  And who am I kidding, distressing is fun.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!


Details:
Cardstock: PTI Canyon Clay
Patterned Paper: Memory Box Nightfall collection
Stamps: WMS Halloween Party
Ink: PTI True Black
Other: Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows brads, Tim Holtz distressing tool and circle punch
Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

  12. Fabulous Halloween card, thanks for your comment, must admit that pine cone stamp isn't WMS, but I did look at those stamps when looking for pine cones... (working on wedding thank you cards for my sister's wedding which has pine cones in the theme). Where in No. Cal are you?

    1. I'm in the East Bay near Walnut Creek-Concord. I see you run an inn - I definitely need to check it out; I'm always looking for places to go weekending.
