Saturday Halloween Challenge Card

Good Saturday Morning peeps!!! Hope you all are having some great weather for the weekend. It is glorious here, cool and crisp, lots of fall colors!! My favorite time of the year! Next to Thanksgiving I love Halloween the most and I love making and sending Halloween cards to all my friends and family!

This card I made for Beate's weekend sketch challenge seen here:WSC62.

I started with a 3 1/2 inch by 11 inch piece of basic black card stock, folded in half. I used the new Ghostly Greetings DSP from SU as my main layer. I then used the pumpkins from SU Autumn Harvest , (one of my all time fave sets) which I water colored with my inks and my Aquapainter. I matted that layer onto a slightly larger piece of pumpkin pie and then more basic black. I used my Martha Stewart drippy goo punch to punch out alot of strips of goo in black and pumpkin, layered them at the top of the card and bottom of the image peice, Stamped the spider and the BOO from the Autmn Apparitions SU set (retired), added some brads and a word window piece with a brad at the top, some piercing and it is done! Oh almost forgot the doodles, I love to doodle!!! Don't forget the inside, I added a piece of white with a strip of DS paper at the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!
