Boo Halloween card

There is nothing like having a head cold/flu to steal your mojo. I've been in a fallish, Halloweenish card making mood, so here is a clean and simple Halloween card. I took out two pumpkins from the Simple Blessings stamp set, inked them up and stamped them onto Eerie dp from Basic Grey. To make the stems green, I colored those in using a copic marker, then to add more depth to the pumpkins I sponged them using an orange ink (Tim Holtz). The top panel was made using Eerie dp by Basic Grey, and some text paper from Jenni Bowlin, cream stitched grosgrain ribbon, Making Memories Spooky Alley hat pins, a button and twine. I also distressed the ribbon and paper, to make it not so clean looking, after all it is a Halloween card. For more Halloween card inspiration click here.
