A Distressed Halloween

I love this card! I had a hard time with the background but once I perfected it the way I wanted, it turned out better than I had hoped. It was my first attempt with Tim Holtz Distressing Inks. I think I played all day when they were delivered by the mail man :) I came up with some really nice vintage backgrounds for a few other cards I had in mind. Those will be posted at a later date.

Halloween for me isn't much of an event in our house and I wish it would be because I love dressing up and singing the Monster Mash. Who can resist dressing up and being something or someone else for a day. I have some costumes laying around but they dont get any use. Now my daughter just turned 15 used to love Halloween and got excited weeks before the day even arrived. Her mind would change daily about what she would dress up as. My favorite was when she dressed up as Blossom from the Power Puff Girls...lol..she loved that cartoon. Those were the days I suppose.

So here is the card...the envelope was also handmade by me. I used the envelope maker which I absolutely love. When I have some more time I will start listing a materials list so you'll know what I have used for each card. Have a great day :)
