Halloween Fun again!

Hi there! I really enjoy Ann's Blog, The Stampin' Schach, and was very inspired by her creation found here. What a great card!! I changed mine up a bit (mine is a bit "busier" than hers, I would rather have put in the witch like Ann's card, she's just so cute! (I may have to get that stamp set!) After looking at this card photographed, I probably shouldn't have put both sentiments on there but oh well, it will have to do for now. I might try my hand at this again as I really enjoyed creating it.
My version of Ann's card features the sweet skeleton from the Twick or Tweet stamp set (Holiday '09 mini). Isn't he a cutie???? I love the little doggie chewing on the "bone"! lol When I coloured him in, I added some variation to his fur with black splotches, just to make him a little more interesting. There really isn't much to do once you've stamped this image & coloured the dog, as most skeletons remain fairly "airy" :-)
I've used Only Orange, Basic Black, W. White and a bit more of my Melody designer paper (I'll have to call it that from now on!!). We punched a circle out of a spare piece of cardstock and sponged the moon in first, stamped the skeleton and tree from Branch Out stamp set, and then stamped the Trick or Treat from the Holiday Wishes SU! hostess Level One set. We adorned the corners with the photo corner punchas well. The orange card portion was also embossed with a harlequin type embossing folder. This card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.
Thanks for dropping by, I hope to have some birthday and Christmas cards to share soon!

It is a good thing I swallowed my coffee before I clicked on your card because I would have spit out my coffee :) I laughed so hard! Ann's card is very pretty, but yours is hysterical!
