BOO ~ Crafty Secrets

Good Morning!
I wanted to show you a card I made for the Crafty Secrets booth at CHA in Chicago.
I used the new double sided Halloween Greetings Creative Scraps. I L*O*V*E the new double sided scraps! They are great for covering large areas on altered items or a background for a card. You need to always by 2 so you can use the images too, you can even cut out 2 of the same image and pop one up on the other for dimension. The non-colored images remind me of old book pages, L*O*V*E.
OK - on to my card....

I used some of the black sticker strips on the side of the card, you can get those from Sandy at Crafty Secrets. They are SO nice, great detail. I used a piece of the Creative Scrap for the main image, I trimmed it with my mom's old pinking shears.

This is the embellishment I made for the card. I used 2 big Prima flowers, I colored one black with a Copic marker. The center of the flower was made with a bottlecap, a punched piece of black cardstock, Glossy Accents and googlie eyes. I squeezed the Glossy Accents into the cap and just laid the eyes on top, they didn't sink to the bottom. I thought it turned out great, they wiggle around inside the flower, ahhhhh, I L*O*V*E Halloween, LOL!

Supplies: Paper - plum & black cardstock, Crafty Secrets Halloween Greetings Creative Scraps. Ink - Copic marker #100 to color the flower. Acces. - CS stickers, Prima flowers, button, black hemp, bottle cap, googlie eyes, Glossy Accents. Tools - Scor-Pal, pinking shears, Spellbinders Labels 8, circle punch.
