Little Boo Set

Happy October 1st Peeps! Today is a big day at my house. 23 years ago today my DD was born AND 33 years ago today I married my wonderful hubby!!! Yup that's right, on the same day 10 years apart!!! Must be my lucky day huh?

Well on to my card for today, I set out to make this card using the sketch challenge on Splitcoast. Of course, I strayed a bit, or maybe alot! LOL! I looked at the sketch before I started and drew it out on my scratch paper, but I missed that the back panel was directly in the middle of the card, I put mine to the side and I used circles instead of two squares, so I guess you might say, I was just "inspired" by the sketch! LOL!

The card base is perfect plum card stock. I followed that with pumpkin pie, I used the scallop edge punch on one side. Followed by More perfect plum and then the DS paper is from the Cast-A-Spell pack. I added some black grosgrain ribbon around this panel. I tied a "bow knot" around the ribbon. I used the "Happy Halloween" sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes set. Stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink onto white with Pumpkin Pie and punched out with the word window punch. I also punched out another in basic black. I used a needle and some black embroidery floss to attach the sentiments to the ribbon.

I stamped two of the "Little Boo" ghost with black pigment ink and used clear embossing powder to emboss. I used the 1-1/4 inch punch to punch out the little ghost and my 1-3/8 inch punch in basic black to mat. First I colored in the pumpkin, he is holding, with my prismcolor pencil.

I punched out three 1-3/8 inch circles in pumpkin pie. The are put down first and then the two "Little Boo's" are attached over the bottom circles {centered between the three} with dimensionals. I then added three black sticky pearls.

I had this little black box already made so I decided to decorate it to match my card. I used perfect plum and the DS paper on the front. I added pumpkin pie circles and the "Little Boo", made the same way as the card. I added a black brad in the corners. The same sentiment is added to the bottom of the box. I attached the handle with brads as well. Just needs a bit of filler and alot of candy and it is ready for some lucky little "Boo"!!!!!

Well, that is all for today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
