Hello friends!! Hope you had a wonderful week. Fall is in full swing in my corner of the world. For once we aren't having a lot of rain and so instead of soggy leaves on the ground we have nice crisp leaves... so much more fun to walk through!! Have a little clean and simple Halloween card with a somewhat unconventional color scheme to share that I made for several challenges: ColourQ, CAS(E) this Sketch and Waltzingmouse October Pajama Party - Greenish Halloween.
I have a collection of older Waltzingmouse stamps that I dearly love but have not used much in the last year for no good reason other than I just have too many stamps! In order to remedy that situation I decided that I needed to start checking out WMS' monthly Pajama Party and see if I could play along. This month the party is all about what else but Halloween and let me tell you if you are into Halloween WMS has some absolutely fabulous Halloween stamps. I have only one WMS Halloween set and that is Cicely at Halloween so I got that out and used the color combo from ColourQ (which just happens to feature the color green... perfect fit for the WMS PJ Party challenge - Greenish Halloween) and the sketch from CTS to help me along. I used some of the small icon images from the set and stamped them using VersaMark ink on green cardstock and then die cut the circle using a Spellbinders plain circle die. There is a large sentiment stamp in the set and that was stamped on the card base so that it would show through the opening. A fishtail banner was die cut and stamped with another sentiment from the set and adhered. I finished off the card with some My Mind's Eye enamel dates in pink and orange.
