Challenge FS285- Bootiful Halloween Card

Yesterday I received this week’s issue of the Splitcoaststampers Weekly Inkling Newsletter.  I haven’t had a lot of spare time lately… but after doing some household chores I opened the newsletter and checked out this week’s challenges!  Today’s card is inspired by the SCS Featured Stamper Challenge FS285, and this Halloween Card by Sophie LaFontaine… who just happens to be this week’s featured stamper!for splitcoast stampers fs258 challenge halloween

In the original card, Sophie used black and white polka dotted papers, and a stamp image called ‘Halloween Dancers’… I changed it up a bit using river rock, basic black and pumpkin pie polka dot papers along with the bootiful occasions stamp set from stampin’ up!embossed, punched and sponged moon

On the original card, Sophie had stamped a moon onto the polka dotted card stock.  Additionally, she added some piercing around the focal image.  I punched a scrap of embossed daffodil delight card stock, sponged it, added white gel pen highlights, and faux stitching around the image… not sure I like it at all though.. what do you think?river rock card stock is difficult to photograph!

Had a difficult time photographing this image, stamped onto river rock card stock it was very dark.. so I had to brighten it up a bit.rhinestone bling, wild wasabi an pumpkin pie

Sneak Peek Alert!!  The embossed basic black background features the lacy brocade embossing folder from the holiday mini catalog!  LOL, couldn’t help adding a little rhinestone bling to the boot!lacy brocade embossing folder on black card stock

Sorry for the graininess of the photo… that happened when I was trying to brighten the image!!and retired punch... what was the name of that punch?

The border punch is now retired, sadly… but the scrap from my basic black scrap folder was just the right size so I couldn’t resist adding it to today’s card!

Hope you enjoyed today’s FS285 Bootiful Halloween Card!  Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to reading your comments!
