Season of Friendship Halloween

I had to sneak in one last Halloween card!  I sent these out to a few people this year.  Hopefully they have received them by now and I won’t ruin the surprise. 

This design was heavily inspired by Kimberly Van Diepen.  I loved how she did a white fence in front of the Season of Friendship tree.  I added the crow in the limb and the Happy Halloween at the top with a couple black brads.  I also used Dazzling Diamonds mixed with Black Embossing Powder to make the tree and cat sparkle!  The base card is Whisper White, with a layer of Basic Black and then Kraft.  Both the Basic Black and Kraft I used my distressing tool to rough up the edges.  I also used a sponge dauber with Black ink around the edges of the Kraft and the punched oval for Happy Halloween.  The cat is actually from Batty for You.  I stamped and embossed her on Kraft, then cut her out.  She is popped up on dimensionals.  Oh…in the background I used the stars from Classic Backgrounds in Versamark.

So…those of you who purchased my Season of Friendship Kit, here is one more idea for you to use that set!
