CASED Halloween WitchiePoo

Greetings! I can't believe that Friday is Halloween already. I'm curious – what does everyone do on Halloween? Does everyone still take their kids around trick or treating or do most people attend other functions? I'm just curious. We do the traditional thing, go to my Mom's for pizza and then take the kids around her neighborhood then home to bed. The night always seems to go pretty fast. Of course there is always the school parties – which I will be working again this year J. My kids are both big Star Wars fans so they both decided they wanted to be Star Wars characters. So, once again I get jipped out of making a cool unique costume, but they are happy to be who they are going to be. Sophie is going as Padme Amidala and Nolan as Jango Fett. I'm thinking it would be fun to join in the whole Star Wars theme and dress myself as Princess Leah. I wonder if I could get Todd to be Darth Vader -YEAH RIGHT! LOL

Anyway – in keeping with the spirit of Halloween (excuse the pun – heee heee), Here is a card that I cased from my favorite blogger, Michele Zindorf. I purchased the cute Halloween set from Michaels with my 50% off coupon a few weeks ago. My card doesn't come near to being as awesome and Michele's, but I still think it's pretty cool.

The witch, spider and web are a set from Inkadinkadoo. I also used Lovely as a Tree from SU. Inks I used are: basic black, old olive, apricot appeal and craft white. I used white and black embossing powder for the spider and web and filled in the stars on the witch with the signo white gel pen from SU. All the images were stamped on whisper white paper. I also used apricot appeal, pumpkin pie and basic black cardstock. The background is all brayered. I also used the SU photo corners punch, cropadile and black brads. The moon was created by cutting out a circle with my coluzzle and masking. I think if I were to make this card again, I would emboss the witch too. Regardless it was fun to make. I hope you like it!

Happy Halloween!
