Happy Halloween!

Recently I saw a card by Carrie Lipovich in the Sept/Oct issue of Paper Crafts magazine (pg. 36).  I liked it so much I decided to use it as a jumping off place for my own.

I punched a circle out of scrap paper, placed it on the smaller brown rectangle and inked a harvest moon with several colors of distress ink.  The image is Crow Gate by Inkadinkado, one of their clear mini stamps.  They make some nice images for not much $.  I added 3 black dots in the upper right hand corner for balance.  A black layer separates the image from the card base (same card stock).  The picket fence is Martha Stewart; the small pumpkin punch has no identifying marks - sorry.  The pumpkin was shaded a bit with rusty hinge for depth.

I have a tag that I'll be sharing later this month.  It was truly CASEd from my friend, Patti Behan, at Ranger.  Years ago I took classes from Patti at some LSS in NJ.  She's a great teacher and a lot of fun.  I got to see her in action at the Ranger booth this past CHA in Chicago.  You rock, Patti!
