Hi! This card was made for today's Ways To Use It Challenge: Halloween!
Okay, I just got Autumn Apparitions on Tuesday, and had to mount it! LOL! I LOVE THIS SET!
I embossed the sentiment and spider in Black. (I never start with the sentiment, but I just LOVE IT! LOL!)
Next, I grabbed my "spooky tree" punch and some BBlack paper and got that great tree for the background! I love that punch!
Next, I stamped the Autumn Harvest Pumpkins in StazON onto Glossy Three times each. I used daubers and re-inkers to color the pumpkins. I wanted to put a face on the small pumpkin, so I started scouring my "faces." I looked for over 30 minutes for a face and then noticed that Autumn Apparitions has the PERFECT face for the Autumn Harvest fat little pumpkin! Wow!
I embossed the 6 pumpkins in clear and then cut and layered them.
The ribbon is from AC Moore. I bought it last year on a roll at 70% off! Love to get a sale!
I added the eyes on the cat, SPEEDY, with my Signo pen. Speedy is also embossed in black!
I'm sending this to my sister's son for Halloween. Chase is a favorite nephew, and just started Kindergarten this year. He had the roughest second day on record!
What do you think?

I think this is awesome. It is the best Halloween card I've seen yet. Little Chase will love it. Hope the rest of his school life is better than that kindergarten experience. My mom had to move to a whole other town after a bad experience I had in second grade! (what a sliveling little brat I was)
