Freshly Made Neat and Tangled Halloween card


  Today I wanted to play with virginal craft items:  my new Carta Bella "All Hallow's Eve" 6x6 papers and this bloom stamp by Neat & Tangled.  The "Halloween" sticker is from Echo Park's "Chillingsworth Manor" alpha stickers sheet.  The glazed pumpkin brad is also Carta Bella.  I stamped the flower 3 times and fussy cut; I added glossy accents to the polka dot flower petals.  I embossed the kraft card stock with Cuttlebug "Seeing Spots" and the black Carta Bella strip with "Swiss Dots."

  And I needed an excellent sketch, so I went over to Freshly Made Sketches.

Here is a close up of the flower:

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Sunday :)

Oh June, this is fabulous.... your flower is just awesome... love that Glossy Accent finish and the pumpkin brad center... the embossed background is pretty great, too!
You asked about what my squirrel image was printed on... I used Core'dinations premium textured cardstock... a color mixed pack called Timeless. It's rather thin so it ran through my printer as slick as can be.
Hugs!
