I'm usually not too much into halloween, but I had so much fun making this card! I used stamps from Technique Junkies. These are the stamps I used:
I also used the Classic Harlequin Stencil.
To make my card, I used distress oxide inks with a blending tool to create a colorful background. When that was dry, I embossed the Ephemeral Crow over it with black embossing. I colored it with distress inks. I added some background interest with the Classic Harlequin Stencil and parts of the French Text French Text background here and there.
I added the background to a black marbled cardstock panel, then onto an A2 card. Some shimmery purple and black embroidery floss and some black bead swirls from Prima finish off the front of the card.
For the inside, I stamped the Happy Halloween and the
Be Scary onto a scrap of white card stock, and tore the edges for effect, sponged on some color throught the stencil, and added the panel to the inside. I had a couple of strips of the front panel left from when I trimmed it down, and added those to the inside also.

Enjoy these lovely fall days if you are having fall now. We are still not in full color yet, but trees are turning surely. It puts me in the mood for fall stamping, casseroles, and sweaters, and curling up with a good book, or stamping supplies, or knitting, or....well, you get the idea!
