The boots are made for spookin

Another Halloween card completed!  It’s amazing that this one got completed at all.  I have no idea why this one was so hard for me.  I used MFT #94 sketch. 
Look at it.. it’s great... so why did I have such a time with it?
Maybe it was the color combo I used from The Play Date Café challenge #154.  It’s their 3rd anniversary.  They have a great new look, go check it out.
I thought it’s a great color combo.
Flame – Grape – Mulberry
Great color right?
Man I had the worst time with this card.  I must have stamped 4 or 5 different things to make as the main attraction but nothing set well with me.  I’m content with the card but not over the top with it. 

It’s ok if it doesn't excite you either .. I totally understand.  Maybe I just had an off day.  It was a rough one, I mean the day.  Kid auguring, bad headache and just not feeling that great about myself right now.  Maybe it’s because my baby is moving away in a week.  The 26th see leaves, but that’s for another time.
So here it is.

I do have to say I am VERY happy with the actual picture.  So clear.
Here are some close ups.  I double stamped the boots and socks, embossed them and then popped them up.

I have a Marvy punch of this little tag.  I’ve had it forever.  Don’t we all have some of those items from the beginning that we still go to and use?  I used some of my favorite twine from WeRMemory.  I just made myself laugh.. I have always thought this was black twine but I just read the package and it’s named: blueberry.  LOL. 
Looks black to me.
Two other challenges for this card are:
I hope my next card goes tons better than this one did for me and I hope all your crafting projects make you happy and satisfied.
