PPA11 Trick or Treat



TGIF Peeps! Hope your week has gone well.

Today's card is made for this weeks challenge on Pals Paper Arts Blog. This week it is a color challenge: Perfect Plum, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie and any neutrals you want. Well, with these colors you know I have to make a Halloween card. I wanted to do something different so I finally decide on doing a round card. I love to do these and have not done in a while. I used my cuttlebug and circle and scallop circle nesties to create the card base and mats.

The base is pumpkin pie followed by basic black and then the DS paper is from the Cast-a-Spell pack. I cut a piece of white for my sentiment with the middle section of the nestie. I then stamped my sentiment and trimmed it down. I added a mat of basic black behind it.

The candy corn and sentiment are from the "Tasty Sweet" set. The cat comes from the retired Autumn Apparitions set. The candy corn is colored in with markers and the cat is inked up with black stazon. I stamped them onto some white card stock and cut them out. I wanted the corn to pop a bit more than they where so I matted them with black and trimmed closely. I added some glitter, doodlebug sugar coating glitter, to the corn and the cat. It is very spark-ly IRL!




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