A Halloween BOO!

It is hard to believe that is it already September. My goal is to have about 10 cards and treats ready to go for Halloween. This project is set number three. For inspiration, I used the Midnight Madness sketch challenge at at Priscillastyles. There is a lot going on Priscilla's blog!

The cute little witch on this card is from Crafty Secrets. I stamped her in Memento Black, and colored her with my copics. I used a glitter pen on the stars on her hat and a Sakura black glaze pen on her shoes. Following the sketch, I wrapped ribbon around the card, and hung a pumpkin charm with a jump ring. The opposite corners are done with a SU punch. I added black lace and rhinestones in the corners.

I love the glassine bags from PaperTrey Ink! I filled it with a few sweets, and attached the topper. The topper is cut with my nestibilities. The shoe and sentiment are from the same set as the witch, punched out with SU punches, and attached with ribbon.

Hope you are having a great weekend.
