new H card

Not "new age" but "new H" - short for Halloween, natch'! This is my first Halloween card of the year. I'd picked up some new-to-me goodies at a garage sale held at my fav LSS yesterday but when I walked in I spotted some cute Halloween-themed paper and HAD to have it. YOU know how it goes!

I'd not intended to hide all the pretty paper but that's how the card developed. I decided the ric-rac ribbon was too cute to not add, and ended up drawing over the witches' stockings to match the orange in the ribbon and window. This card's inspired by Her Royal Badness, Sherry Cheever ... and you know me and card challenges; it's also for the CPS #79 sketch!

stamps:
Stampendous' mini witch shoes, studio g's "trick or treat" (inside sentiment); papers: Reminisce's Verbal Creep DP, Paper Reflections' black, SU's More Mustard and So Saffron card stocks; ink: StazOn's Jet Black, PC-generated outside sentiment; accessories: Reminisce's diecut stickers and Rusty Pickle Big Top trims
