Day Four MHK Designs Release - Halloween Party

     Another fabulous release from MHK Designs this month and now we have a delightful Halloween set, called "Halloween Party."  A photo of the complete set is at the bottom of this post.  Here's my card showcasing the image and one of the sentiments.  I think this one will be perfect for party invitations.


I used colors from the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments
but also added orange for the traditional
 Halloween Jack-O-Lantern.



     I colored the image with my ProMarkers and cut it with a rectangle die from Spellbinders.  I added a rectangle mat and then cut and double matted the sentiment, also using rectangle dies but this time from QuicKutz.

     I thought a Halloween card was a perfect opportunity to use up some of my favorite-color-purple scraps of CS and dp.  I love purple so much, I find it very difficult to throw out any scrap of paper that has purple on it so I'm always thrilled when I can find a use for some of those scraps.

     The polka dot ribbon is also a scrap from my stash.  I tied a black bow and added the fabric pumpkin for my embellishments.

     Challenges:

     I hope you're enjoying the new releases and seeing what each DT member has done with the sets as we showcase a different set each day.  If you've missed the first three sets, just scroll down or go visit the MHK Designs blog.  We still have one more really lovely set to show you tomorrow and then, on Sunday, our new challenge begins.  You don't want to miss the inspiration photo for that one!   You still have another day to play in the July/Aug challenge.  Check that one out, too.  Hope to see you again on both of those days.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Very pretty and I love the purple (ok, I'm biased since purple is my favorite color). Such a beautifully colored card.

Beautifully done, Connie! The bright colors on your vintage creation make it so unique. And of course, your trademark purple touches bring out the "spooky" for Halloween! Colorful, fun, and SO PRETTY! hugs, de
