Googly Ghouls Halloween Card

It has been a gloomy weekend here in Prince George. But a rainy weekend is the perfect excuse to stay indoors and craft! With "World Cardmaking Day" on Saturday, I was determined to complete several cards to add to my stock. And I did just that! I had quite the productive weekend. Let's just hope this motivation continues this coming week. With 2 weeks left till my first craft fair of the season, I'm starting to feel the pressure!

One holiday I love making cards for is Halloween. Even though I don't generally send out cards for Halloween, Stampin Up has the cutest Halloween stamp set, called Googly Ghouls and I love making cards using these cute characters!

For todays post, I'm playing along with The Paper Players - a Halloween theme. I chose an older Mojo Monday sketch, pulled out the Howlstooth and Scaringbone designer paper and designed this fun card:


I love how these patterns coordinate so well together and the layout is full of layers - my kind of layout! I added googly eyes to the characters as an added embellishment. The 'ticket sentiment' completes the Halloween theme.
Thanks for looking!
