Trick or Treat

Trick or treat, smell my feet... okay, okay, enough of that!  I am thrilled to be partying along with some of my favorite crafters today, Waltzingmouse Blog Party day!  Woot woot!!  As you may know, all of the fans of WMS get together on the 17th to celebrate the wonderful inspiration we get from Claire and her amazing stamps!  This month we have a color challenge and, as you might guess from the holiday later this month, the colors are black, orange and purple!
For this card, I had to dive into my new Witch Hazel collection of papers and I just adore the retro feel of the patterns in this set!  I started off with the graphic orange and layered some tiny dots of black and white under the Witch's Brew label from Wanda's Pantry.  I have found this is probably my go-to set for Halloween cards, the labels are so cute and gross and I just love them!  I finished the card with some embellies from the collection and some purple and white baker's twine. 

Thanks so much for visiting today and I'll be by a bit later to check out what you all make!  

Supplies:  Stamps (WMS), DP/Embellishments - Witch Hazel collection (October Afternoon), Twine (Trendy Twine), Cardstock - Basic Black (SU!), Select White (PTI), Ink - Perfect Plum (SU!), Dies (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug

  2. How fun Jen! love that skull and banner sentiment! You know - I have these label stamps but every time I see one on someones card - it's like I never read it before - this one cracks me up "unconsciousness in 5-10 seconds according to weight" - what a visual image that evokes!! Great papers on this!
