Spooky Wicked Halloween Card with Character Construction

Hi Dreamers,
Let's get wicked today with a spooky Halloween card!!  I put together some stamps from Character  Construction to make this fun Halloween card.  The set is called Mad Tea Party #4.

To make this card:

  • Start with white cardstock and Mini Capricious Crafters Workshop Template.  
  • Lay the template on the CS and spray with spry inks.  Dry
  • Stamp the Character Construction images and a sentiment onto the background.

  • Layer with black CS onto an orange card base.
  • Add a few orange Rhinestones and a piece of lace
  • On the inside add a scrap of the background and a fun sentiment

This card is going out to a family member.  I am sticking to my plan of sending out more cards.  I send out something every week.  I have a whole bunch of Halloween cards ready to go out.  You have seen them all on my blog.  LOL

I would also like to enter my Wicked Halloween card in the following Challenges:
