Simply Betty Stamps - On The Fifth Day of Halloween....

My Ghoul gave to me...5 flying ghosts!!!

Here's my card to go along with this fab Betty Challenge theme!!!  I do so hope you join us over at the SBS Challenge Blog for super fun!!!  Everyone has been putting in SUCH gorgeous effort and work over these last number of challenges.  It's very inspiring and very amazing!!!

My card starts off with a simple orange cardbase of 5.5 x 5.5.  I then have it layered with ivory DP with tan stripes, followed by a square of Basic Grey - Ambrosia paper.  I zig zag stitched those layers together and then colored my main image, Cassandra from the FABULOUS new Spooky Hallow line.
 I colored Cassandra in with my Copic and Prismacolor markers and then stitched a straight stitch all the way around her.

To follow along with today's theme, I used the ghost image from Stretch N Bubbles.  Using MS Word, I printed the image five times over, colored the edges with matching colors to Cassandra and then added pearls and rhinestones for embellishments and added dimension!!  I added the ghosts with 3-D foam adhesive.

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!

We're so looking forward to seeing your creations!!

Crafty Hugs!

What?! Stitch a straight stitch?? Holler, why would you stitch a straight stitch in the first place?
