Happy Halloween

It's funny but I keep reading on everyoness blogs how we all think
our months keep flying by....
But doesn't it just seem like we just had a short summer??
 
Seems hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner
and here I am making a Halloween card.....
but it will be here before you know it!!
 
 
I made this card for two different challenges....
Cheery Lynn Designs challenge blog to use "Kraft"......and.....
 
 
I used Kraft cardstock as my base......
kind of like how it gives it a bit of a vintage feel....
it was embossed with some new Cuttlebug folders called "Midnight Hauntings"
Both the doily and the leaf flourish are Cheery Lynn Design dies....
and were cut with paper from MemoryBox called "Nightfall"
 
The owl is a MS stamp and I used some Puffy embossing powder on him....
the doily and owl are "popped" up.....
 
If you haven't bought any of the Cheery Lynn dies yet...I can recommend
the doily one called French Pastry and the Flourish one B117...
I have alot of their dies, but I use these over and over....
I have a new one called "Notre Dame"...it cuts beautifully
and can't wiat to do a project with it!!
