Halloween Card for Tuesday Morning Challenge #371

With the posting roll I was on I kind of slipped up. Actually, I just spent all my free time making these tiny paper roses, which I am in LOVE with. I've made about 45 now, I think. I like to sit and watch t.v. or Netflix or anime and make them since I have a hard time just sitting and watching a show or movie, I have to have something else to do. I will post later about my tiny roses when I have more done and have photos taken in daylight.

Anyway, this post is dedicated to the sketch challenge for Tuesday Morning over at their blog.

Here is my card, front and inside:

Like usual my paper came from my ancient stash. I put down a base mat of purple Halloween paper and then placed corrugated cardboard painted black on top. It added great dimension! I then added green striped paper on top of that. I took some glittered orange and black paper and tore the edges and curled them up a bit. I had the perfect Halloween ribbon -- purple grosgrain with white stitching -- that I needed to complete the sketch's look. I had a great sticker plaque with metallic foil accents that says "Have a Haunted Halloween" which I placed on top of this random paper ghost I found in an organza bag full of little Halloween-themed embellishments. I also found this great brad with a cat on it that I used as well. The other side looked uneven so I used a tombstone button. On the inside I used some more Halloween paper and glued an acetate monster on top. There is still plenty of space for a message and I think the decoration adds a little something special. I'm thinking this card will go to my bestie Jessica sometime in October.

Thanks for stopping by, and keep on crafting!
