Halloween Card - Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop/Sketch Challenge

Welcome to a slightly spooky version of Corner of Plaid and Paisley.
Today I am showing a card I made for a Sketch Challenge.

This is for the Stamping INKspirations October Blog Hop.

It is fun to take a sketch and see what you can make and then see what everyone else comes up with!  
All of the links to the other talented card makers will be at the end of my post.
Here is the Sketch for this Challenge!

 I cut a round mask from our Stampin' Up! Masking Paper using our Circle Dies and masked off the circle for the moon on of a piece of basic white cardstock measuring 4 X 5 1/4" 

*A tip when using this masking paper - make sure you stick it to your shirt or pants or something just to get a bit of the sticky off before sticking it to your paper, I found that if you didn't get a little bit of that tackiness off - it ripped my paper when I tried to peel it off.

I did my background by blending with Fresh Freesia ink down the middle and with the darker colors of Night of Navy and Merry Merlot ink on the outside edges of a piece of basic white cardstock.

I pulled off the circle mask and blended in the moon with Daffodil Delight - and I took my finger and made a little halo around the moon with a little more ink, just blending it in with my finger tip.

Then using the Scary Cute Bundle, I die cut haunted house and bats, the sentiment was done with white embossing powder, a few black dots from the Classic Matte Dots and a bit of black Baker's twine to finish off the outside of the card.

I love to dress up the inside of my cards and the envelope too!!  How fun would it be to get that envelope in the mail?!?

Let's see how everyone else interpreted this sketch!!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
