Yet another Happy Halloween card

Hello Everyone,
It' still me...Margaret!  Kathy is driving home from Texas today but I have managed to make two cards today so will be back tomorrow with another card, unless if she has been really wanting to get into the art room. :)

My card today is probably the last Halloween card for this year.  This card is for my little nephew and I found a sketch challenge which was perfect: Here Come the Boys: #62.  I will also enter the card into the Crafting When we Can Challenge: Make it Sparkle as this card is quite sparkly with all the little details. :)

My Doodlebug paper is pretty much decimated, but I can't tell you how exhilarated I have felt using it all month...and using it up!  (still have a few sheets left though).  As you know from my previous posts...this is hard for me because I love "saving my paper"...feel so bad cutting into it.  But I did it!

The stamp is from Northwoods (last year) and inside I stamped "I've got my eye on you" (also Northwoods).  The sentiment on the front of the card is from the Studio G stamp line offered by MIchael's (this is an old old stamp though).  Obviously, lots of the sparkle is coming from Stickles...but if you look very closely there is some sparkle on the doorknob and the plates on the side.  This was colored in using Wink by Stella pen in silver.  It is a lovely little product to have in your stash.  The sparkle is very subtle but adds a really nice touch.  As you can see from the door, I've cut out some of the pieces and propped them up with foam tape to make them 3D.  I couldn't quite envision how to use this stamp but I think this sketch lends itself perfectly for it, don't you?

Well I hope you had a lovely weekend and got lots of crafting in.  I'm not going to address that dreadful day we all are dreading tomorrow, so I will leave you with good night!  Thanks for stopping by. Margaret
