Happy Haunting....

Hey there!!  Its time for another Timeless Tuesday post!!  I have been having so much fun being a guest designer for Flourishes.  I can't believe my month is almost over {sob!}!  But... onward and upward!! This week the challenge hostess is the super talented Silke and she is challenging everyone to make a Halloween card. 



I am seriously in love with all the new My Mind's Eye collections and today I used the MME Mischievious collection for my card.  The stamps are from the Flourishes set "Witching You a Happy Halloween".   I stamped the little jack o'lantern three times using Tuxedo Black ink, colored them with Copics and trimmed them out.   Three little bats were stamped, trimmed out and coated with Diamond Glaze.  The wreath was created by diecutting black and orange cardstock using the Memory Box Grapevine Wreath die.  I cut a piece of patterned paper, distressed the edges and stamped it with the sentiment. I hug the wreath from a glittery black brad using black, orange & white bakers twine.   The entire piece was then adhered to the card based and the pumpkins and bats placed around the wreath.

You can find out all the details for this week's challenge here and check out the fabulous projects from all the design team gals:   Silke, Heather, Tammy, Beate, Maki, Mona and Cindy.

Looks positively Halloweenish to me (not a word) but I could not think of a suitable hyperbole Rosie for describing the card. I am not into Halloween, but this is a great card for the occasion.
