A Different Kind of Halloween Card

Hi there,

I have a card to share with you that was submitted at Sketches 4 All for their Thrifty Challenge - Saving Paper (Thrifty).  You can see the challenge here.

The challenge is to create a project, saving paper... and show the product before you began your project as well as the finished project.

This is the packaging I used... from a stencil that I purchased.  I've been keeping various packaging if it has a cool pattern on it or random words.

And here's my Halloween card.  
I simply folded the cardstock in half... so the decorative edge is on the right.  The background was misted with Walnut Ink and then I decorated.  I did use some paper... but not as much had it been totally from scratch.  Very fun challenge!  

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV
Cardstock Packaging
Fiskars Border Punch
Walnut Ink Mist
Cardstock Stickers: Studio g
Pop Dot

Here's a closer look.  
These gems were created from a package of half beads purchased from the floral department.  All I had to do was paint them!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
