No Orange on THIS Halloween card!


I have had this skull image for a while and I thought of a way to use it! FINALLY!
I embossed it with pale pink embossing powder,used my circle and scallop punches form SU and some fun ribbon that I "found" in my craft room. (Things are never really lost in there... just piled on top of!) I used one of the new CB embossing folders and added the sentiment. I sponged over the web with some silver encore ink. I added dots with embossing pens and jellyroll glitter pens and there you have it! I wanted to make something for Halloween with any color but the usual for Halloween... Orange,green and purple. I had to have the black... but the pink really puts it out there! Try to do something out of the norm today... I love the feeling of BEING DIFFERENT! You never know who you will inspire!

Well, I have to say I am not a halloween or skull person, BUT...your card is really cute! The idea of making it with "other thant the usual" colors was great.

Hi Dawn, this is adorable. I just love the spider web. I too am not really a big Halloween fan, but after seeing such cute cards i just might have to get into it this year!
