Toiled & Troubled Halloween!

Hello again... today is Halloween, my favourite day - you get to dress up and be extra silly or scary depending on which costume you choose to wear that is! I will be hosting our annual Halloween Party at my work today with my favourite older peeps! I've been searching for a costume for a while now and still have no idea what I'm going to wear... lucky for me I have several costumes already!

Today is also my 4th Wedding Anniversary - Happy Anniversary Mike! We've been together 11 years in September. Time flies!! Anywhooooo....

Today, I thought I'd share a cute Halloween card I made (well, I think it's cute!). It's weird whenever I see a skull - I always say "it's so cute!", not sure if anyone else refers to them as cute?! This card features the 'Toil & Trouble' stamp set from the holiday catalogue.

I took a piece of Basic black cardstock measuring 5 1/4" x 4" and tore the edge - which is appropriate for a halloween card. I stamped the largest stamp and cut it out with the coordinating framelit from the Apothecary accents. I stamped and cut out the skeleton and crow - I coloured the rhinestone on the crow's eye with a sharpie to make it orange and added baker's twine to have the skeleton 'hanging' from the black layer of the card. The sentiment is from the 'Seasonal Sayings' stamp set. I inked the image first in pumpkin pie then I just inked the very bottom of the stamp with early espresso ink to give a neat effect.

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:
Toil & Trouble [wood: 131724 - $27.95; clear: 131727 - $20.95]
Seasonal Sayings [wood: 131937 - $27.95; clear: 128009 - $20.95]

I hope you like my card - Happy Halloween, have fun and eat lots of CANDY!!
