Halloween Theme for Freshly Made Sketch #56 and My Craft Spot

It was a lot of fun making this card using the Freshly Made Sketch #56.  It is a little bit larger (5" x 6.5") to accomodate the cuttlebug embossing folder image.  Before I embossed the Gypsy CS I inked up the embossing folder with CTMH Black ink.  The skeleton was cut with the Close to My Heart Artiste cricut cartridge (pg.76) at 2.75".  Sunset CS and White Daisy CS make up the background layers.  The speckled strip of paper underneath the black ribbon is from a security envelope that my cell phone bill came in!  I applied Silver Liquid Pearls Paint to the moon to complete the card. I am also linking this card to Friday Favorite Things and My Craft Spot.

  6. Great job, the folder is a perfect backdrop for the skeleton! BTW, was it difficult to cut it small? I find that sometimes detailed small items tear when I cut them on my cricut.
