I have another Halloween card to show for which I chose the cute 'Tilda with Pumpkin' from an older collection (Halloween 2008). I went with mostly orange, purple and black colors. The DP is from Basic Grey and My Minds Eye.

Tilda was stamped onto Cryogen white paper and colored with Copics.  I got my new x-press it blending paper yesterday and can't wait to try it. I am a huge fan of the Cryogen paper for years now, will see how I like the new one from Copic.... I'll let you know! I used the Doo Hickey swirl die and a border punch from MS. The scalloped oval die is I think from Marianne Design.

The little spider and the bat (on the top part of the card) are stickers from Recollections I bought at Michaels.
The sentiment is from Magnolia. The row of pumpkins is a ribbon (felt) aren't they cute? 

And here you can see the side. I made kind of an easel-stepper-card...lol.

This is also my entry for this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge!

I guess that's it for today! Have a great day and hope to see you soon again!
