Impression Obsession Challenge - It's a Costume Party !

I hope everyone in this area is enjoying our beautiful "Indian Summer".  What a gorgeous day !  I was lucky to have time to work out in the gardens this afternoon as original plans were postponed.    There is always lots to do out there !      

I'm entering this Halloween Card into Impression Obsession's Challenge - "It's a Costume Party".  Check out the details here:  Impression Obsession Blog.



This card was fun !   I used IO's F2353 Jack Chandelier Stamp (it's so cute).  I embossed with black and then coloured with Tom Bow markers.     I highlighted the pumpkin 'light's with Orange Smooch Ink and then used Glossy Accents to add dimension.    Spellbinders S5026 was used to cut the glossy white card stock and then I inked around the edges.   The paper is by Basic Grey- 'Eerie', that I've had for a while.  I added wide Copper ribbon, narrow black ribbon & bow and some black rhinestones for the final touches.    

Have a great day !
