Cast a Spell

There is a chill in the air!  The moon is crisp and clear and Autumn is in her full glory!  Halloween is only 16 days away!  When I was asked to make a card for this weeks Card Caravan at The Hybrid Chick I knew I wanted to make a special card for Halloween.

I made this hybrid card using the digital kit Moon Laughs and Whispers by Etc. by Danyale. It has such a grown-up feel to the kit. I love the color scheme too!

The theme of this Card Caravan was to use either a sketch or a template for your design. I used a scrapbook template. Template 2 from Monster-licious by Cornelia Designs.  As you can see, the template is for a 2-page scrapbook layout. When I saw it, the right side of it really stood out to me as a great design for a card!

I used the included .png files from the template set to create cut shapes in my Silhouette software.  I then traced the shapes and elements needed to make the card.

I added some May Arts Ribbon and some Encrusted Jewels embossing glitter and fragments from Stampendous.  They add just the right amount of texture and bling.  I colored the flowers by spraying them with Tattered Angels Glimmermist.

This card is going out to a very special person who enjoys the Samhain holiday.  I just know she is going to love it!  Thanks for visiting!
