It's Only Words

Haven't done a lot of crafting lately as  life keeps  getting in the way. I did however agree to join the team at Crafty Cardmakers They publish a new challenge every two weeks and I am very much  looking forward to working with them.

Crafty Cardmakers have a new challenge  and the theme is  'It's Only Words', - make the sentiment the main focus. I decided to go with a Halloween design and a sentiment by TLC Creations which highlights the  word 'Halloween' . The challenge runs  Oct. 13th thru the 25th. Hope you can all play along.

Card Recipe:
Stamp: TLC Creations digital stamp 'Halloween Sign with Spider'
Die Cuts: Spellbinders 'Deckled Rectangles';  Cuttlebugs 'Creepy' 
Papers: Stampin' Up's whisper white, basic black, Real Rust; Designer Paper from older Halloween paper stacks in my stash.
