Ghostly Halloween

As I've said before, I've never done much for Halloween cards.  But I have some stamping friends that have asked for some ideas and since some of them are coming to stamp this weekend, I thought I'd try to have something on hand.

Then,  I saw the One Layer Wednesday challenge Sentiment-a-mania

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.

2. Make a one-layer card using the sentiment as the main focus (or that shares the focus with image).

This image from my one and only Halloween set was perfect!



Can you tell that I colored the white on the edges of the ribbon with my markers?  The white edges were just too fancy for this card.

This is also another entry for the Less is More anything CAS challenge this week.  They have over 600 entries now toward their 1000 goal.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Scaredy Cat
Ink:  Tangerine Tango, SU Markers (Basic Black, Tangerine Tango
Paper:  Whisper White
Other:  Basic Black Narrow Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Pearls

I have another quick post coming up.  I hope you'll check back.  Thanks so much for spending time with me and sharing your ideas on your own blogs.

Enjoy!

This is really cute, Bonnie. I believe I have one Halloween stamp set and the only thing I've used out of it is the cat! I just don't do Halloween cards! This card though is perfect!
