Bombshell Monthly Challenge - Pockets!!!

Greetings!!! 

I'm here with you today to bring you this month's awesome Bombshell Challenge presented by the very lovely Ms. October - Mary Ann K.!!

Here is our challenge:
Hello everyone and happy October ! Here is the Challenge. Make a Halloween card or an invitation to a Halloween Party, but it has to be in a pocket . It can be any type of pocket, like an envelope or a pop out. Use Bombshell stamps and get a little paint or glitter going on. 

I created a pocket card using non-traditional Halloween colors but blinged it up a bit by using pumpkin rhinestone stickers.

All of the DP is from SU!  The ivory card base is shimmery and from The Paper Company - picked up at ACM.  I cut the label and it's edging out with my Cricut.  I ink distressed it with yellow and charcoal chalk inks and my spongy dauber.  I then stamped my "Bombshell Sentiment" with black ink in the center.

I adhered all of my patterned paper down first, then my ribbon.  I then stitched the edges for added visual interest plus extra strength in the pocket. 

Then I added my label using 3-D foam adhesive and the edging was added using my glue pen. 

I used Bombshell Angel as my focal gal.  I inked her up and colored her in with my Copics and Prismacolor markers.  I then used my Versamark Pen and clear embossing powder to shine up her outfit. 

I used a straight stitch around her perimeter and used a "you're invited" sentiment from a $ stamp I had from ACM.  The sentiment was punched out with my SU! word punch.  I added a pull tab using my SU! tab punch that I added with a decorative staple and skull brad. 
My last bit of bling was added at the top with sparkly pumpkin rhinestone stickers!!

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!!
