This Year's Halloween Card

Last year was the first year I sent a Halloween card to some of my girlfriends; several asked what this year's was going to be, so I guess a tradition has been started. :) I came across this sentiment in a magazine on the plane to Vermont a couple weeks ago and had to write it down. This Fluffles stamp was what came to mind to go with it. I decided on the stair step card so that Fluffles and the sentiment would show at the same time. I used Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder on the front panel, then added some punched out leaves and pumpkins, applied some chalk over the pumpkins. Printed the sentiment from my computer then cut out and embossed with Nestabilities rectangle, edged with some chalks. The ghost,bats and tiny leaves are all from the same punch as the pumpkins. The ghost was edged with silver ink and attached with tiny foam dots. The bats are glued onto a thin strip of acetate and attached behind the sentiment so they stand out from the background. The moon was cut from a circle Nestabilities, painted with Shimmering H2O's, and then sprinkled with glitter in some spots for extra sparkle. Fluffles was colored with Prismas...even has the green "face paint" listed in the sentiment. Added some Stickles to the hat band.

Stamps: Fluffles Broomstick.
Paper: The Paper Studio CS, My Mind's Eye DP.
Ink: Stazon. Prismacolor pencils.
Accessories: Nestabilities, leaf punch from Target $1 spot, mystery punch, Shimmering H2O's, chalks, glitter, foam dots, acetate, Cuttlebug, Stickles.
