Cream & Black Halloween & Giveaway Information!

I actually made this card last year - that happens to me often with Halloween; the holiday might be technically over, but my creative drive is still totally into it.  I have stacks of Halloween paper, from all manufactures, and I found this paper in an Echo Park pad.  Here is my Cream & Black Halloween card:

What I Used to Make this Card:
Black Card Base

Arsenic & Lace , #AL71016 by Echo Park, Spooky Icons, #AL71005  (discontinued but available)
Happy Halloween Bat by Cherry Pie Stamps, P437 
Cream Cardstock 
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels #17
Pop Dots

Before I get to the making of this card, I want to share this with you: 

Im having a small drawing on my blog.  All you need to do is click onto this post, chose the costume you like best & when I get 75 costume comments, Ill draw a random winner.  Open Internationally! Please feel free to share!
EXPIRES Nov, 1. 2017

Now, as you can see, this card was very simple to make.  I trimmed a piece of the Spooky Icons to fit onto the black card base.  Then, on the cream colored card, I stamped the Happy Halloween.  The sentiment was then die cut and pop dotted to the front of the card.  This is the type of card you could make over and over again since it is so easy!  I think the colors compliment each other.  Just a
Another Look 
little shout out to Maria at Cherry Pie; they have been in business since 1991 and she has amassed a stunning array of stamps.  Just take a peek at the decorative elements she has (click here) - I don't get paid for this and she doesn't even know I'm telling you all this, but I honestly feel Cherry Pie is worth a look. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you enter my little giveaway.  Stay tuned for many more Halloween cards and projects - this is my FAVORITE holiday and I have so much fun playing with spooky goodies! Fondly, Christi
