Oct. SFYTT5 {trick or treat}

Heeeeelllllo, October! It's A new month and a new sketch from Reverse Confetti for you to try. You're going to love it. I do, and had some Halloween fun with my card. I have other ideas floating around in my head, so I'm hoping to give another stab at this layout later this month. 

I inked up the Spooky Cuties and Spooky Sentiment sets to create this, not-so-spooky card. The papers are from SU from last year. I just adore that plaid, so it set the tone for my card. 

There is a grey polka dotted pattern in the pack and as I was reaching for it to cut it up, I stopped myself and said "hey, I can make my own!".  So I pulled out some grey card stock and the small dots from Whole Lotta Dots and created a custom panel. 

I stamped the sentiment from Spooky Sentiments with Versamark ink and then sprinkled on some orange embossing powder. I love the shiny, smooth texture this adds to the card. 

I punched out three kraft circles and used a few of the images from Spooky Cuties to create a subtle background for my main images. I used the Versamark ink again, for that tone on tone look. 
I stamped three of the cuties onto white cardstock and then cut them out. I popped each one up with a foam dimensional. 

Here is the sketch for this month. We really want to see you play along.
