STMC16: Happy Halloween

Hello! I discovered a sketch on the Stampendous blog yesterday and decided to play along. I figured if there was "Christmas in July", why not "Halloween in July"? I LOVE making Halloween cards!

This was a pretty simple sketch, which is nice because it leaves the options open for embellishing! I went with minimal layers which is something I don't often do, so it was a bit quicker to complete than some cards.

I asked DD what she thought of the clouds and moon...she told me she would take them off. I know clouds aren't usually black, but they are at night.... Right? I opted to leave them on; I think it looks fun and different. I also used a bit of black grosgrain ribbon and some Swarovskis to finish it off.

Image/Sentiment: Stampendous
Ink: Memento
Paper: SU! Naturals White, PTI True Black, My Mind's Eye DP
Embellies: PTI True Black Felt, Wright's Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Swarovski Crystals in "Jet"
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, PTI Cloud Dies, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, SU! Corner Rounder

I need to quick get ready; I'm taking DD and a friend out for lunch and miniature golfing. Sounds like a fun afternoon!

Thanks for stopping by; enjoy your day!
