I Vant Candy!

Okay, so for the past few days I've been singing "I want candy," but, I've been singing it like The Count on Sesame Street.  "I vant candy!"  Yeah, I'm a dork, but, at least I'm a crafty dork!  LOL!  I absolutely LOVE Halloween!  It is my favorite holiday.  It's so much fun and for a whole day you can be whoever or whatever you want to be.  Now how fun is that?!  It's almost as much fun as this card and these wonderful Stampendous Stamps and Essentials I've used.  Here's my card:

This cute little guy has already been hitting the chocolate, can you tell?  LOL!  I couldn't resist adding a little chocolate-ty goodness around his mouth.

Here's what I've used to create this card:

Memento™ Tangelo Dew Drop Ink Pad
Spectrum Noir™ Markers:
  • GB1, 2, 3
  • BG2, 3, 4, 5

  • EB6
  • CT3

Bazzill® - Purple Cardstock
Bazzill® Bling - Orange Cardstock
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Solar White
May Arts Ribbon® Satin String Striped Ribbon

Here's what I did to create this card:

Cover background stamp with embossing ink and stamp onto white cardstock
Add the two embossing powders and embossing enamel over stamped image and heat emboss
Stamp mouse image, color, trim and ink edges
Stamp sentiment, trim and ink edges
Add orange and purple ink to background image
Create card base from purple cardstock
Trim orange cardstock to fit as shown
Adhere all layers as shown

Tie ribbon into knot around top of card
