halloween fright night…

Hello Dear Crafters,

I have never, ever found enjoyment in being frightened!  This is as scary as I get…




I took the focal image and the paper in the top portion from an old paper pad (all info at the bottom of this post) and the lower striped paper from another paper pad. Distress inks toned down the mailing tags, a die cut doily along with hand dyed seam binding and some fabric flowers embellished the lower corner…


I found a tiny jack-o-lantern button along with a yellow crescent moon button, snipped off the back loops and attached them to the card. A small cut-out from the same Halloween pad was used on the inside.




Here are a whole host of wonderful,(and frightful) inspirational images…




and to give you another good reason to play along, someone will be winning this adorable die…




Blessings and hugs,

  • I’m with you, I don’t like being frightened either. Your card is just so stinkin’ cute, I love the vintage, shabby chic feel. Lots of pretty elements here, including the black doily. Well done!
