Happy Halloween Card Recipe

Since Halloween is right around the corner I've been enjoying jack-o-lanterns and purple candles with moons on them I made a Halloween card 4 the kids.  I also made my granddaughter a Halloween quilt with glow in the dark Halloween material.  I used an old hand me down stamp set from a company I don't know.  I actually have all my Halloween stamps and card stock in one case so I pulled some of the paper from my stash for the background.  I hadn't played with my Tim Holtz oxide inks lately so I pulled those out to make a background for my swirly witch and Happy Halloween sentiment.  Sparkly enamel dots from Doodlebug were used to top it all off.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Consider donated hand made cards to our great charity.  Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
