Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #312 - Halloween

We're halfway through October so Halloween will soon be here. For our new challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog we'd like to see some Halloween creations.

When our sons were little, we always took them out to trick or treat. Once or twice, we even got to go out with our grandson. Now we just stay home and give out candy.

Here's the card I created for this challenge:

I used Distress Inks to create my dark sky background and then sprayed it with water. I attached it to some patterned paper and then to the card base.  The spider web and boo sentiment are Cricut cuts.  Since I don't have any ghost stamps, I drew the little ghost and cut it out.  Then I used a white gel pen to draw stars on the background panel.  Finally, I added a layer of clear Wink of Stella to everything except the background. BTW, my decorations are little candles that I've had for years and years - cute, aren't they?

You'll want to enter our challenge so you can have a chance to win $20 from our sponsor Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.
