 Haunted Castle Halloween Card

Hello everyone!

I hope this post finds you well and safe. It has been a while since my last post, but it doesn't mean I wasn't busy crafting. I just hadn't had a chance to post anything that I have made in last couple months.

I would like to share with you one of my Halloween creations:

I created the background using white cardstock, then I used a circle cutout to ink the moon, then covered moon with a circle to ink the rest of the paper in dark blue shades and then I used embossing ink through a stencil to create the starry night by heat embossing with golden embossing powder.

I used Cricut Happy Haunting and Teresa Collins Chic & Scary cartridge images to cut out all the elements for my scary scene.

I used Sue Wilson Camellia complete petals dies for my hand made black roses, and black seam binding ribbon for the elegant bow.

I would like to enter my card into following challenges:

 The Paper Girls Challenge #208 Pick 3 (I picked circle, flower and lots of layers)

Krafy Chicks Challenge #526 All Occasions 

Make My Monday #131 Use your scraps (Roses made using scraps)

I hope you enjoyed this post.
Have a fabulously safe day and thanks for stopping by...
