Happy Halloween

Good Morning!

Boy I'm on a roll this week! This is my 4th and last card for this week. The other day while I was surfing the net I found some inspiration from Market Street Stamp designer Julie Day . I haven't used my brayer in such a long time.So when I saw her card, I knew I had to do something with it. I also grabbed some  inspiration from Michelle Zindorf. I love her cards! This card is also for a very special block party. Market Street Stamps is celebrating their first year in business!! Congrats!  I must say I'm a very loyal shopper. LOL my Clip it up  is filled with their stamps. Can't wait to see what they have in store for us in the next coming year.

For the inside I kept it very simple.

Card Details:
Size: 5x7
Layers: Decrease every  1/4 inch, inside layers 6 1/4 x 4 1/4 and 6 x 4
Card Stock:  Paper Trey Ink and Stampin' up.
Ink: Stampin' up and Memento.

**The Tree was handmade. I took my versa marker and went around the edge of the branch in the stamp set "Night Owls." I stamped it on brown card stock and then hand drew the trunk of the tree around it.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
