SPOOKTACULAR--Stamp Simply #104

Did someone say "stamp simply"? Well, ya can't stamp much more simply than I did on this card! Today's challenge is to make a Halloween card. Here's what Sharon says:

Sept. 11 - ssnotime104 - Halloween is Almost Here! - Today's challenge is to make a card or project for Halloween, or perhaps a bag or container for treats! Anything goes. And I realize some don't care to do Halloween, and that's just fine -- then just incorporate a pumpkin into your project! Everyone can play, and we hope you do!!!

Like I said, this one is super simple!! And I love it!!! I was flipping through Halloween paper to find something to inspire me and I found THIS!! It's from a mat stack I got at Michaels by Recollections called, appropriately enough, Halloween. This paper did all the work for me--isn't it fantastic!!!??? Add a few little embellishments and it's DONE! The sentiment is from My Favorite Things' newest release Too Cute To Spook set, stamped on Only Orange with Memento Tuxedo Black. The rest should be easy to figure out :)

So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave a comment on Sharon's blog telling her where you uploaded. Please use the keyword ssnotime104 if you upload to a public forum. Check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team, along with our September Guest Designer:
