Sooo Spooky

It's raining now and getting a bit chilly.  My dear daughter and I spent the day on the golf course.  The leaves are just beginning to change and I'm thinking Autumn like the wonderful ladies at Creative Card Crew.  They are sponsoring a theme related challenge this week.  

This stamp set introduced in last years Stampin' UP catalog is still one of my favorites.  This House of Haunts is sooo spooky!  Following the color recommendations from the designers over at Colour Q proved to be quite a challenge.  At first I was doubtful but I soon learned this combination makes a great card for Halloween!  I think it's super cute.

Whisper White cardstock stamped in Early Espresso and sponged with the same along with Cherry Cobbler in the sky created my focal point.  Sticky notes gave me a perfect square for sponging.  A polka-dot background in Cherry Cobbler is from Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper and the matting is Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

The ribbon is Peach Parfait ... I love it's perfect peachy color!  A couple stick pins added my "bling" and a button is tied on with white string.  "Spooky" is a rub-on from the Spooky Night collection found in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I used Early Espresso cardstock with the edges inked in Whisper White Craft ink and punched with the Modern Label Extra Large punch.

You can see more "spooky" celebrations at Paper Cutz Challenge where they are all about Halloween this week!  I hope this project inspires you to make something of your own ... thanks for visiting!
