WMSC13 Halloween Card

Saturday, September 4, 2010

I don't know why, but I was feeling very nostalgic today for some very, very old designer paper from Stampin' Up!  I got it in my head that I wanted to use this paper, so I scoured blogland until I found a sketch challenge that I wanted to do with my cherished paper.  I settled on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

I'm not sure why, but as soon as I saw the sketch I thought of a halloween card.  I've been dying for an excuse to use my From the Crypt stamp set and originally that is what I set out to do.  But the sketch had other ideas and evenutally persuaded me to use the Batty For You stamp set instead.

I embossed the stamped image to make it really show up and it looks fabulous in real life.  I was a little worried that the writing was too small and would come out all smudgy but I'm happy to report that it looks pretty good.  I can clearly read that is says "scaredy-cat."  This is my second halloween card this 2010 season, and I suspect it won't be my last.  I can't help myself!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
