Get Ghoulish

Another great sketch challenge from Mercy inspired today's card. I've been itching to break out my Halloween stamps and patterned papers. Although I am not a huge fan of the holiday itself, for some inexplicable reason, I love to make Halloween cards. Go figure!

The image stamp is called "Halloween Grocery List" by Whipper Snapper Designs and the "Get Ghoulish" sentiment is from Martha Stewart's Spooky Phrases stamp set. I used Doodlebug Design PP called Candy Sticks for the backdrop. I love the colors in this paper and it has a nice touch of glitter for a little sparkle. You can see it much better by clicking on the image for a close-up view.

The Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch seemed like a perfect fit and the cute little skull brad is from a set I purchased a few years ago and I don't recall who made it. Anyone know the answer?






It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug Designs

Stamps: Whipper Snapper Designs, Martha Stewart

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Dimensionals, Ribbon, Metal Brad
Tools: Martha Stewart Punch, Copic Markers, SU Distresser
