Spooktacular Halloween

I picked up this AWESOME flocked paper last year and never used it. While gathering Halloween-themed supplies to make this card today for the SCS sc191 sketch challenge I spotted it and thought it would match River Rock. Yeah, baby! The mulberry paper lends itself to a spooky look on this card, don't you think? I think it's kinda cobweb-ish looking. For the unitiated, you simply dampen the edges and I used a pencil eraser to pull at the edges to fray them slightly. Voila - Easy Peasy! Thanx for stopping by!

note: You've just got thru Sunday to post your vote re: mounted/unmounted stamp preference at this post to register for some Halloween stamped images.

stamps: A Muse Artstamps' sentiments (the inside sports their FRIGHTFUL & delightful one), Cherry Pie's spider (a portion of their 2-part one w/out its web), katie & co for studio g Halloween (inside sentiment in River Rock, overlayed w A Muse stamp in black); paper: Making Memories flocked spider web DP, PaperReflections' black, SU's River Rock cardstock, unknown white Mulberry paper; ink: SU's River Rock, StazOn's Jet black; accessories: Rusty Pickle's velvet ric rac ribbon
