Only 5 More Weeks Until Halloween Season! It's time to start crafting your spooky home decor, make those party invites, or start preparing treats for visiting boys and ghouls. This week the Stampendous Design Team is Getting our "BOO" on! 

Here's another one of my favorite samples I made for the July Release. It features the new Rose Skull stencil.  I had so much fun creating this card, it is an inspiring stencil! It makes a great Halloween card, or invitation to a Halloween party.

Step 7:  Color the image with Copic markers, trim to 3 3/4" x 4 3/4", use the foam applicator to rouge the edges with the Memento Inks
Step 8: Adhere the Rose Skull to a 4" x 5" piece of Grape Stripe paper, sprinkle aged silver embossing enamel and Champagne glass glitter in the upper right corner, heat from underneath to melt, repeat in the lower left corner

Love the cobwebs in his (her?) brain! I have a little girl who just saw this card and she is loving it too! She asked me why he had flowers in her head. I told her that she was going on a date and she wanted to look pretty! Now she (Jenna) wants to make her a dress to wear on her date! LOL to be that young and free again!
Your card is beautiful! TFS!
