Halloween Candy

Another quick card for today!!
I just loved this sketch for the Limelight Papercrafts Sketch 56. The challenge was to use this sketch and to incorporate a tag. I knew I just HAD to use my BOO border punch for the border element in the sketch! And I love this glitter candy DP from the pack I picked up at the Target Dollar Spot not long ago. The sentiment (which says "Halloween is my favorite holiday! What other holiday gives me an excuse to "test" ALL the Candy?") from the MFP set Broom Rides was a natural choice for my tag element.

This card is also perfect for the Paper Sundaes Challenge #36, to use fall or Halloween colors. I really needed another Halloween card, so this challenge was well-timed!! Finally, the colors for this card were inspired by these two great items from the Pegasus Maiden Etsy Shop as part of the EtsyInspired Challenge EIC#106.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: MFP Broom Rides
Paper: Paper Company CS, DP from Target Dollar Spot
Ink: black Marvy LePlume II marker
Accessories: EK Success BOO border punch, SU tag corner punch, satin ribbon, green eyelet, Crop-A-Dile, foam tape

Those etsy inspiration pix are so neat, and you certainly have managed to pull off that challenge very well. The dp came from Target?? You always find such awesome deals! [hey, haven't seen any 'el-cheapo' sandpaper lately...did you run out? ;) ]
