Simon Says Stamp and Show me spooky

Show us something Spooky is the challenge this week at the Simon Says Stamp and Show.   This is my Halloween card for my daughter. It started out as a card for my son but ended up with the stylish witch from Artistic Outpost.  My dd will like the colors on the card and hopefully the image!

What you can't see on the card from the picture is there is a sheer piece of purple fabric over the embossed paper. I re-cycled the fabric from a bouquet of flowers. Tied the knots to represent a quilted fabric. 

One more Halloween card to go!

Have a lovely day.

  9. I thought the same as Monique and initially thought what a brilliant way to suggest flying bats with the tied knots. I'm sure you daughter will love this card. It's great!
