BC113 - Halloween gets Punchy


Hooray it's Friday! It's also Blogger Challenge Day and this week it's all about "Punches or Die Cuts"

I don't own a lot of Dies so I chose to go more of the "punchy" route with my card.
Since I love Halloween and had recently found this adorable Skelton stamp in the $1 bin at JoAnn's I couldn't resist buying it (and a few others)so I decided to put it to good use on todays card. I paired it up with SU's new DP (Cast-a-Spell)and my Martha Stewart Embossed Pumpkin row punch.

I based my layout on this sketch but decided to leave out the rectangle portion as it just wouldn't fit.

The spiders are also a punch (EK Success) and I added some stitching, dew drops amd raised up the pumpkin (colored with SU Markers) that the skelton is holding. I added some shimmer to the skelton with a Clear Spica Glitter Pen.

I hope you've enjoyed my Halloween Gets Punchy card. Don't forget to visit the other members blogs (click on the icon on my sidebar) and try this challenge out yourself. Have a wonderful weekend.
