Too Cute To Spook

I created this Halloween card using Witchies from Saturated Canary. 


I used this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday.  I started with a black card base. I added a piece of purple card stock and purple plaid patterned paper.  Then I added a piece of purple striped patterned paper that I backed in black card stock between the purple card stock and purple plaid paper.  I cut a strip of black card stock and punched the bottom edge using a spiderweb border punch. I added a piece of black sheer ribbon just above the punched area and then added a piece of purple dotted ribbon to the center of the black sheer ribbon.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I cut the image out in a circle and inked around the edge with a purple chalk ink pad.  I cut a circle out of black card stock and punched around it using a spiderweb corner punch and then backed the image with it.  I layered a purple cloth flower and a purple paper flower with a lavender rhinestone in the center and added it to the ribbon.  I created the sentiment on the computer and printed it out on white card stock. I cut it out and inked around the edges with the purple chalk ink pad.  I added 5 lavender rhinestones to the bottom edge of the image and then 3 more to the plaid paper just above the image.

Here is the inside of the card. . . .

To create the inside a cut a piece of white card stock slightly smaller than the card base.  To the top I added a piece of purple card stock.  Then I punched the bottom edge of a thin strip of black card stock using the spiderweb punch. I added a piece of the purple dotted ribbon between the two. To the bottom I added a piece of the purple plaid patterned paper.  I cut a piece of the purple striped patterned paper and backed it in black card stock. I added it to the top of the plaid paper.  I added 3 rhinestones on each side of the striped paper.
