A Not-Too-Scarey Halloween Card


When I first saw this card done up from My Favorite Things, I decided this set was a must-have. I just love these two little characters "twick or tweating" from "Trick or Treat with Who's That Girl". I paper-pieced "Who's That Girl's" dress and the rug from Basic Grey's "Mellow". The DP's are from the same paper pack. I embossed my sentiments in white EP and the pumpkin in black EP. I painted Shimmerz over the pumpkin and attached a gold half-bead to hang it from The bat is out of silver paper with MS's punch. I'm really tickled with this set and the end result. I don't ordinarily do much with Halloween but I'm sending this to my nephew's kids and I plan to make a few more for the grandkids and maybe some cutsie Halloween items for them to share with their friends at school. I hope you have a wonderful day as you start your week. Thanks for stopping by.
