This is my first week playing along with Cupcake Inspiration and my first official Halloween card of the year! When I saw the photograph this week I thought of Halloween and broke out a couple of great sets of stamps (believe it or not, only the bats are from a Halloween set!) and got to work!

I tried to replicate the lacy bow on the cupcake with a lacy background stamp on chocolate cardstock, stamped the frame and filled it with a spooky tree, some bats, and a glittery moon. I finished with a lacy orange border punch topped with a sheer black ribbon.

Supplies: Stamps - Victorian Fripperie, Halloween Party, Asian Gardens, Very Vintage Labels 10 (WMS), Cardstock - Chocolate Chip (SU!), Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest (PTI), Ink - Basic Black (SU!), Glitter, Two-Way Glue Pen, Lace Punch (Martha Stewart), Ribbon - Crafta, Foam Squares
