Happy Halloween

Well I've never made a halloween card, so this is a first with me! And I don't own any halloween stamps.

The orange paper is from Kaboodles from their Halloween range, the haunted house is a template from Papercraft Inspirations Magazine November issue, the ghosts I've made smaller from their template,bats my own drawings,mini envelope handmade, and last but not least if I didn't visit Claudia's blog I would not have discovered this wonderful little girl carrying the pumpkin. She is drawn by Inger Harding who designs her own motifs and isn't she just so cute, she is a freebie on her blog. She comes with those leaves. The 'Boo' is stamped with Melissa Frances clear stamps. The yellow strip is bright flourescent orange ribbon I received in a candy, stars are See D's stamps with silver glitter glue. White gelly roll Sakura pen used on the black card.

Now the measurements to this step card (I think they are called). 28.5cm x 20cm to roughly fit a 23cm x 16cm envelope. I do prefer to make something that will actually fit inside an envelope. Fussy???
You score at 7cm and then another 6.5cm, that gives just the one step. On some blogs I've seen cards made with another step added. I felt comfortable doing it this way (it's my first).

This creation fits three challenges,Papertake Weekly 'Halloween - frightful but delightful', Spoonful of Sugar 22 'Halloween', Cute Card Thursday 'stars at night'. Hope you like. Thanks for visiitng and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
