halloween in July?...

Were you wondering what was going on?...seeing a Halloween card in the smack dab middle of July? Well I just got a crazy idea yesterday and so I ran with it! I made this card for the 2 sketches 4 you challenge. I love this layout...simple but so different with the scalloped edge hanging over a little. I used colors I hardly ever use...I pulled them from my Doodlebug paper...and it worked! How can you ever go wrong using Doodlebug...everything they make is darling!! I didn't do any stamping on the card. I used some glittery black stickers from making memories for the "boo!" and I used cardstock stickers from Doodlebug for the stars and bat. Hope you like my July Halloween card! ...sorta makes me wish it was fall...sorta! Have a terrific rest of your Tuesday!!
chat at ya later!

paper...green galore, only orange, lovely lilac, doodlebug dsp

You are my kind of girl...I just designed my Halloween card on Sat. I had just gotten some new rusty pickle paper and could wait. And I started my Christmas cards on Father's Day night. Love it. This is very cute!
