Boo for the First of the Month

October is always a favourite month for me - the middle of Spring with the weather getting warmer and time to plant the summer veggies in the garden....and getting close to Christmas! It has been a wild start to the month though with storms overnight and winds up to 140km/hr. There were a lot of trees down and roofs and cars damaged but we are ok!
Of course there is one other season at the end of this month that I don't normally have much to do with and that is halloween. It's not widely celebrated here in Australia - or back home in NZ. Some I know do take the "treat" part on for their neighbours. So in honour of neighbours here is a "Boo" card :-)

This card is a CASE (Case and Share EVerything) of a card I saw on Stampin Connection. I changed the colours of the base layers and added the Tangerine Tango - Black and orange right?  And added layers of Linen thread and the Jewellery tag layers. But the basic "bandaged ghost" idea of the original I kept intact. Very little stamping involved too!!

Card stock: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Stamps: Tiny Tags (retired)
Accessories : ( no Big Shot!!!) Cotton Trim ribbon, Jewellery Tag punch, Linen Thread, 3/4 and 1/2' round punches and Owl punch

Happy stamping until next time,
