7 Days of Halloween Blog Event - Day 6


Please note that this post was edited when Rachel kindly let me know that we were on Day 6, not Day 7!  Sheesh - too many late nights :)

Welcome to Day 6 of this fabulous blog event! I hope you are enjoying all the tasty treats that 'the crew' has created!

My inspiration for this card came in a round-about way.  It started with Charlie Brown's chevron striped shirt ...which led me to think of The Great Pumpkin....which totally qualifies for our Halloween inspiration blog event....well kind of....

The chevrons were cut with a MFT die from the GORGEOUS paper that I happened to find at Winners last week!  I will definitely be on the look-out for more of this paper on my next visit.  I adjusted the die when cutting to make the stripes narrower.

A simple graphic sentiment (Silhouette) and the card was done! Please take a minute or 10 to drop by the following blogs for more Halloween Inspiration!


Also, remember to leave a comment here on my blog for a chance to win a $20 gift card at a mystery location!  The random draw will be made on Tuesday, October 16, 2012.  I will contact the winner by e-mail.

Happy crafting!
