Halloween is not really my jam, but I do usually make a card for my husband. Since Halloween is the word of the week at Just Us Girls I decided to get his card done early to save my usual last minute scramble. The pumpkin is part of the Jack O’ Lantern Fancy Die set by Hero Arts, cut from an orange scrap and brushed with Tangerine Twist. All stamped images inside and out are from Haunts and Harvest by Gina K Designs. After working on the layout, I decided the background was too plain. The Spiral Petals stencil by Hero Arts brushed with Soft Stone ink was the closest I could come to a spider web. For the panel that will go on the inside, I stamped the ghostly trio in Soft Stone to give them an ethereal look, then stamped the sentiment in Obsidian. I’m also entering this in the Mod Squad Challenge – Pumpkins Pumpkins everywhere.
