Spooktacular Halloween - Mojo 105

This week I got a nice little parcel in the mail from my on line scrapbook supplier. As some of you know I am a sucker for designer paper!! It is what fabric was to my mother. I have loads of it piled up waiting to be used and yet I still feel the need to spend more money on the newest stuff. And the current collections are amazing.

So for this fun sketch I decided to pull out my new halloween dp and the matching die cut stickers. No stamping needed!!! Although I'll probably put a sentiment inside the card. I used my fav Stampin' Up halloween colours: Basic Black, Old Olive, Pumpkin pie, and Elegant Eggplant. I also used Grey for the card base, Elegant Eggplant ribbon and the Stampin Up! circle punches (1 1/4" and 1 3/8"). The rest is not SU!

My favourite part of this card is the scallops and that eerie looking purple bat. Looking at it now I should have spent a little bit more time on the orange and black squares maybe distressing or sewing or, if I had an embossing folder, I would have embossed the orange CS. Something that would have brought more attention to the bat without overpowering it. Either way this was an excellent sketch to play with and I learned how to make those scallops with my circle punches.

If you don't hear from me this weekend, I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend with family and friends and getting some me time in your craft rooms.
