Paper Sundaes #91 Halloween

'Halloween or Fall' is the theme this week over at Paper Sundaes and there is a $15 gift certificate from our sponsor - Simon Says Stamp to be won.
I have been really wanting to try the "distress ink around a circle moon with an owl on a branch and a spider" technique thingy.
You know what I mean.
I decided that this card needed to be plain and simple.
Unfortunately I was under the misguided idea that this also meant quick and easy.
Not so! (Not happy)
But sometimes you just have to go with your instincts - take a chance - risk it all - have a go - run out of time to make another one!
I decided to combine both theme choices this week  ... this is my 'Halloween' card with a spider who looks like he is about to 'fall'. (he he)

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Scrapalicious Black Orange and Purple

Fussy and Fancy Fall or Halloween

Just popped over to the Paper Sundaes website and saw all of the amazing creations that the girls have made this week. Ohhhh - they are fabulous! Check them out.


  1. You are so funny! I love the orange gradation in the background, mine always look splotchy so super impressed! And I am pretty sure the owl won't let the spider fall far from his mouth!

  2. I think it's very cool. I got a kick out of your post.
