Great Impressions - Halloween Special

Good morning! Still playing with a few of my Great Impressions' Halloween stamps...and a new sketch:

Works perfectly for my *Halloween center step card! 
(After giving it some thought, this could be a great birthday card for someone with a sense of humor!)

Just For You (C370) is the sentiment. I inked only the portion I needed.
Rose Intertwined Hearts (G450) Do you see it? I inked up only a bit of it and stamped along the edges of my 'tombstone!'

Spooky Tree (G432) is heat embossed in black. Love the shine and texture. Wanted to make sure the tree stood out after I sponged on the colors for the background.

Add a Stampin' Up! embossing folder and Perfect Pearls powder...Love how it shows up on the black cardstock. Have you played with Perfect Pearls?

And a few Distress Inks (Dusty Concord, Salty Ocean (it's a limited edition color), Mustard Seed) and you've got yourself a Halloween card!

There's still time to sign up for the charity hop...and enter the September Challenge!

Inky hugs,
