Again, wasn't sure whether the three purples would go together, but I got them all in and I am happy with the results. Purples and Black screamed out Halloween.  

Die-cut the one panel, cut and layered the two small banners.  For the focal point...die-cut two squares, and using White Daisy stamped, colored and cut these adorable Little Monsters...and used on both the inside and outside of the card.

My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #177. You still have time to join this challenge...so hop on by to check out the other Design Team member inspirations and other entrants...you have until Sunday September 18th to enter your project. 


Purchased a retired stamp from Ebay and loved the corner borders and sentiment on it; however, the corner borders were either too small or too big so I went back to the drawing board and decided on using one of my favorite flower dies.  Die cut 2 corner borders in Silver Glitter paper, stamped the sentiment on vellum with VersaMark, dry embossed in silver, wrapped the vellum around white cardstock, added the corner borders to the vellum and then adhered to a Paper Fundamentals Black cardstock.
