A Spoon full of Sugar - Halloween!

It is Spoon full of Sugar day! and it is a spooky one this week! Yep we are making Halloween cards! I can't believe we are already so close to Halloween.. I mean I feel like we are still in Summer... I have been in a time warp the past two months... and the fast forward button got pushed and I am suddenly sitting here and it is OCTOBER!! Wow... no use pouting.. better just get my act together and get caught up huh? So A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge is to make a Halloween card, and again this is a great time to show off more of the great Halloween image from Alota Rubber stamps.
Now my entire card was planned around using the "Witches Hutch" I just love it... common... frogs legs, newts eyes.. what isn't to love? LOL especially all those spider webs! I colored everything with my Copics. And then used the Spica glitter pens to high-light the glass jars.

I then colored the the witch and cauldron from the Dressed for Halloween set - LOTS of great stamps in this collection, then I cut her out to pop her out in front of the Hutch.
My card starts with a green card stock, then matted the Basic Grey eerie pattern paper with a black card stock. I love all the spider webs and spiders on this one. I found a purple satin ribbon and ran it across the corner, then over that I matted the sentiment "Happy Halloween" also from Alota Rubberstamps.

Now to see all of the other DT spooky creations, pop over to A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge. And don't forget there is always a great prize up for grabs!

I'll be back later this morning.. I have a second post today.. with some FUN EXCITING NEWS!!!!

Terrific card, Michelle. The Halloweem Hutch has to be one of the best Halloween stamps I've ever seen.
