Happy Halloween!

Hi there!

TGIF!  How are you all doing on this fine Friday
afternoon?  Hope all is well with you!  I want to
share with you a card I made for The Shabby Tea Room.
I couldn't resist this challenge with the super fun
challenge photo and sketch for inspiration as seen

For my card I got out some Martha Stewart paper. 
Those crows and pumpkins in the inspiration photo
are awesome!  Lovely leaf decorations, too!  Anyways,
I scored the white background at 1/2 inches to look
like the siding on the house, but one really cannot see
that I did that...oh well!  This card was fairly easy to
put together yesterday evening.  And, another
Halloween card is finished.  Now, for my Christmas
cards that's another story...hehehe!  I thank you for
dropping by today!  Take care, hugs!
