It's time to get my Halloween cards together. I only make two cards each year, one for each of my grand-nephews, Oliver and Carpenter. They live in another state and are always so excited to receive snail mail. I have used one of the cards for this challenge.
Several challenges inspired this card. The first, Double Trouble #69, is a biweekly challenge. This time, we have been given a color board to use for guidance along with a twist to exclude using bats. In addition, the challenge is partnering with The Paper Girls Halloween Challenge #210.
In addition, inspiration came from the weekly sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #391 so am submitting my card there.
Onto a black card base, I adhered a panel of green cardstock cut with a die followed by a panel of patterned paper. Next, I die-cut the banner and matted it with black cardstock, adhering it with foam tape. The sentiment was die-cut and adhered to a white oval surrounded by a green die-cut oval ring. The pumpkins were fussy cut from patterned paper, touched up with Glossy Accents, and adhered with foam tape. The inside of the card was lined with a white panel and decorated with more fussy cut pumpkins.
