Spooky Halloween card

Have I mentioned this week how much I love Penny Black stamps??? LOL Next week I am teaching 2  classes plus doing a Perfect Pearls demo. Am I ready for any of that - no! Instead of prepping, I was playing with my new Penny Black Halloween set! I don't even celebrate Halloween but these guys were too cute to resist!
We have a demo card in the store right now done with the Birch Buddies Stampendous clear set with a Christmas theme. I was speaking with Heather S today and she thought the basic layout would make a great Halloween card so that got me going....
The trees stamp are by Stampendous. I stamped them a couple of time out of grey Coredinations cardstock and cut them out with my craft knife and scissors. I then embossed the same trees on black cardstock with Crafty Capers Black Ice embossing power in real life they are nice and sparkly. I mounted the grey trees on the black with foam mounting tape for extra depth. I then stamped the pumpkins and cat/mouse by Penny Black on white cardstock and colored them with my Tombow markers. I cut out the images and popped them as well with foam mounting tape. I mounted everything on Coredinations Wild Honey Distress cardstock then onto a black main cardstock. I added a moon (from the Penny Black set) and colored it with my Sakura Stardust pen for some extra "bling". Now just gotta figure out who I'll be sending this card to in October!

Hi Victoria! So cute how you have the kitten flying through the trees and over the pumpkins.
