Fussy and Fancy......Fall or Halloween

Hi Susan here...

Well I can't believe how fast the weeks are passing, but sure enough they do....and so it leads me to tell you that over at Fussy and Fancy the continuing challenge is Fall or Halloween, this is a fabulous theme full of inspiration. This is the time for Group B to give you some really great inspiration.
For full details of the challenge and sponsor and to see just what Group B has got to show you, call across to the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog and join in with us for this one!!

Now onto my card....

I don't tend to make a lot of Halloween cards, but I couldn't resist using these fabulous foam pumpkins that I found amongst our stash.
I used inks to slightly colour the edges and put black paper behind the face.
My backing papers are from my stash and I was so pleased that they all matched with each other.
The large chipboard 'H' is from Cloud 9 Designs, I used rub-ons for the letters to complete the word 'Halloween' and then stamped some bats onto the top of the letter.
The ticket is from Tim Holtz, I used the same green card that the card blank is made from and then aged the edges with inks.
The little flowers are from Hobby Craft.

Well I couldn't make a card about Halloween without using this little chappy from The Stamping Bazaar Store, designed by Marina Neira. I have used chalks to colour the image.

Well there you have it, I hope you liked looking. Thank you for all your comments they are so welcome.
Love and hugs
