I have a spooky Halloween invite to share with you today! This is my card for CPS Sketch 236, where we were sponsored by EAD Designs this week. The vintage cream/black/kraft color combo makes it fit The Shabby Tea Room #80 and Stampotique Designers challenge #38. The black crow stickers make it fit The Sisterhood of Crafters "For the Birds" challenge. And the black lace makes it fit the Ribbon Carousel challenge #21 and Pals Paper Art #112. Here is what I created!!

Instructions: Make card from kraft cardstock, and distress ink the edges. Cut spiderweb paper slightly smaller, distress ink the edges, and adhere to the front. Cut a doily in half, distress ink, and adhere to each side of the card. Wrap black lace around the bottom. Round the corners & distress ink the edges of a vintage cream cardstock block. Stamp the flourish in black ink, and the fleur de lis border in dune pigment ink to it. Stick the scroll sticker to vellum, cut out, and adhere to the bottom of the stamped cardstock block. Adhere the entire block to the card front. Tie a bow from gingham ribbon, and then stitch a button around the middle using twine. Adhere the bow to the upper left corner of the stamped block, then accent with a skull sticker. Stamp the sentiment & banner to vintage cream cardstock, cut out, and adhere above the scroll sticker. Add the crow stickers to the front, then accent with clear jewels and a brown paper flower to finish.
I love the fact that the "Wicked Spirits" part of the sentiment could be considered your guests, or a yummy beverage that you might serve at the party! I also like the fact that the card is more elegant and pretty, than sweet and cute. I love the vintage feel of it, and the muted colors- not a drop of orange or purple in sight! Tee hee!
Well, that is everything I have to share with you today! I hope that you have a great rest of your day! ♥♥♥
P.S. I was recognized in a couple of challenges! Here are the badges!
