My Last Halloween Card

for this year. Time to move on to some Thanksgiving type cards, a holiday that seems to get lost these days.  As soon as the Halloween decorations come out so do the Christmas decorations!  So I digress....... I began with a piece of white glossy cs, and used a circle stencil for the moon.  To color it in I used a bright yellow highlighter pen, just makes the moon pop! Then inked the card with eggplant purple, and then around the edges with black making sure not to make it solid colors.  Gives it a more eerie feel to the background.  I stamped just the tops of a 3 tree stamp from A Country Welcome, in the lower corner.  The bats and sentiment are from Inkadinkado.  The white behind the spider is a dryer sheet I took the heat gun to and added to the edge.  The spider web was cut with the Cricut, and I added glitter to the back edges, yep, the back!  I just needed a slight sparkle, like the reflection of the moon.  The green spider is from the Dollar Store, it was a bad of rings, just cut the ring off and gave him red rhinestone eyes.  The black swirls are some I made with black puffy paint and transparencies, the scan caught some reflection, but that doesn't show on the card itself.  I am entering this card in the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C157: Halloween over at:

Hope they like this newer dark side of me LOL
Now off to get some scrapping done in Danica's album.....until later
