Spooky Wreath

I think I nearly have enough Hallowe'en cards made now - need to check them though! This card is for Color Throwdown's Challenge #263 which was the perfect Hallowe'en colour combo and for Just Add Ink's Challenge #186 to be inspired by the photo below. I opted to use my Spooky Wreath stamp from Taylored Expressions and attempted to make a candy corn imitation background with lots of texture!

And here's my card.


Stamps: Spooky Wreath from Taylored Expressions

Papers: Tangerine Tango, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango both from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Basic Black Chevron Ribbon from Stampin' Up, Circle Nestabilities, Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, So Trendy M-Bossabilities Embossing Folder all from Spellbinders, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
