Happy Hump Day Peeps!
Today I am sharing a card I made with the sketch challenge today on Splitcoaststampers.

I was stumped for a bit when looking at the sketch. I then started looking for a set that would fit the small image panel. I settled on the Stampin Up "Dark &  Dreary". I stamped the candle stick with black stazon and colored it with some basic gray ink using my aqua painter. I used some cajun craze and daffodil delight ink for the candles and flames.

I used some DSP from the Frightful Sight paper pack.

I had a few of these black roses that I had used on another project laying on my desk and thought it would be  a good addition to the Halloween card.  

The little rose is made from a sizzix die and then rolled up. I added a rhinestone to the center and a couple of rhinestones to the candelabra .

The base of the card is old olive and the DSP is matted with basic black. I rounded the corners of the main image panel and the large back panel.

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