Eat Drink and be Scary

The first card for Halloween and I have to give the design up to Mojo Monday!  (#262).   As soon as I saw this weeks sketch I knew what I wanted to do. 
I learned how to make rosette about a month ago.. ( yea I’m so behind the times) and now I can’t get enough of them. 
The stamp is one I picked up in the dollar bin.  Isn’t she cute with her little bow.  The big thing going on right now are chevrons.. I love them and it’s one of the reasons I grabbed this new 6x6 pad.  It’s by a company called MME.  This one is called Haunted.  Mikes are caring them, there are a bunch of different themes.  Really nice ones.  Does anyone know what MME is?  I’ve never heard of the until now.

Do you see right under the lace strip.. oh that is a sticker that I got from a pack that Martha Stewart puts out.  12 sheets of adhesive borders.  When I bought it I didn’t even know they were stickers.  I just liked what I thought was the paper that I would cut to the border I wanted.   Way to read the package.  Now you can tell how I shop, like what I see, throw it in the cart.

Anyway that strip under the lace is a ribbon but not really a ribbon.  I know you guys think I’m crazy.. I AM! That’s been determined along time ago.  It came on a ribbon spool and again I thought it was ribbon.  Nope when I got it home it’s like plastic and is sticker like.  Just peel the backing off and put it anywhere.  It’s the greatest.. like a special surprise.   Just Add Ink blog’s has a theme challenge this week #JAI139.  Something new.  I'll be adding this card to their challenge. 

I am really trying to remember or should I say take time to decorate the inside of cards.  It just makes the whole card so complete.  The trick or treat strip is another one from the Martha Stewart booklet. 

So on to the next one.  Also still doing that damn witches hat.  I hope I get it done by the 31st.  LOL.
