Halloween Already!!!??

Well, it's true, October is here!!! Where did the year go??  I love Autumn and all that comes with it, from the cooler temperatures to the magnificent colors and, of course, HALLOWEEN!! 
So I'm sharing this card that will be added to my considerable stash of "spooky" greetings ready to be sent out.

The image and the sentiment are from a Power Poppy set called Feeling Fall.  I stamped them with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed them and colored them with SU markers, then I embossed a panel of rusty card stock with a retired SU folder, (I forget the name, I apologize).


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

Both the sentiment and the gorgeous spider are from a retired SU set called "Dark and Dreary"

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

I went with the middle horizontal line, ribbon, pumpkin and any embossing.

  1. Hi Maria! What a great Halloween card. Your image is superbly coloured - as always. You're such a miracle worker with markers! My favourite part is ombre effect on the spookily embossed card base. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players again.
