Happy Halloween!

I made this fun card using some adorable Halloween paper from Stampin' Up! I believe it's last year's line, but it's new to me and I absolutely love it! It's got lots of really intriquate designs on it and it isn't corny. I am more drawn to elegant than I am to corny. It's just my style, which is why I like this paper so much. It's still a little bit spooky, but is very elegant at the same time and I love that! I also really like the colors. A lot!

This is another card that I did in two sittings. In the first sitting, I thought I had finished the card, but it was missing something. On the green scalloped circle, it just looked too simple with the frame and the scull and crossbones. I thought about the design overnight and then stared at it again in the morning and decided it needed some splattered paint on it to make it a little darker. My original plan was to take a toothpick and flick paint onto the image, but the paint was too thick so I ended up just smearing it around with the toothpick. I like the look. I think it's just what this card needed.

Happy Halloween!
