Ahoy Matey...


Today I'm playing along with Double "D" Challenges: Octoberfest Challenge. I decided to go the Halloween route for this one :)

Here's my card:

I LOVE this color combo for Halloween!!! It was inspired by a card that Amy Tsuruta posted using Catherine Pooler colors: Sangria, Pink Champagne, and Orange Peel (click HERE to see her fabulous card). I have quite a few Catherine Pooler inks but I'm still working to build my collection, and I don't have those particular colors yet. So, instead I went for some similar Stampin' Up cardstock colors that I have in my stash: Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, and Pumpkin Pie (I also tossed in Soft Stone from Papertrey Ink for my 4th strip).

The inside sentiment says: "Arrrr ye ready for treats?!"

I'm going to send this to my 10 year old niece for Halloween! I hope she loves it!

Thanks for visiting!!!

Have a great day!
