Here is my SpOOkTacUlaR project:

I made this Halloween/Birthday card to celebrate Pam's Spooktacular 40th Birthday!

I started out with my Gypsy and Chic and Scary.  I used this image and hid the witch hat.  I sized the images to 4 inches.

The image on the left was cut out of the striped paper (see below).  The image on the right was cut in black cardstock and had the inner oval cut.  This gave me a black frame for the striped layer.

I sized three witch's boots from Happy Hauntings to 2.33 inches.  I cut them out in green, orange and purple.  I ended up only using the purple and green patterned cardstock.

I cut out these 3D flowers from Art Philosophy in the same three patterned cardstock papers.  I sized the flowers to 4 inches and 5 inches.  I used my tweezers and rolled the flowers from the inside in and glued them together.

I added some stickles on the edges.  I used black, purple and lime green.

I trimmed off the shoe part of the boot in green and adhered it on top of the purple layer.  I pop-dotted the shoe to the card.

I inked the edges of the stocking and shoe with black ink.  I tucked some purple crinkle ribbon behind the frame. 
I used a KinderStampo stamp for my sentiment.

I used glue dots to adhere the flowers and added pearls to the centers.  I also added two pearls to the shoe.

I have a little blog candy for you today!

Trick or Treat! Love that cute little boot. Thank you for sharing how you made everything.

My favorite Halloween memory is kind of silly. I always went trick or treating in my grandma's neighborhood, and one year her neighbor gave away cans of coke! Its my favorite drink and I always remembered that. :)
