Have a Spooktacular Halloween--Crazy 4 Challenges #9

Told you I'd be back soon with another accordion card ;-) Dang, these are fun! You *have* to try one! For you scrappers, these would make awesome little albums, too!

Okey dokey, this week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge is to make your finest Halloween creation. I had so much fun making an accordion card for yesterday's Stamp Simply challenge that I made another one for today. You can check it out in the post below this one for specifics.

My BOO letters were made with MFT's Bling 'Bet and rhinestones and cut out with Standard Circle Nestabilities dies. Other stamp sets are Too Cute to Spook (looks like it's not available right now), Who's That Ghost Flopsey, and Ghoulish Labels Set, all by MFT. Card stock is Basic Black and Tangerine Tango and patterned paper is from the Eerie 6 x 6 pad by Basic Grey. All images were stamped on MFT's Perfect Paper Panels and colored with Copic markers. After I stitched around each panel and adhered it to the base card stock, I added black grommets to the top of each panel and tied ribbon through them. Then I added some punched images and a sentiment and called it done. I love how this turned out!

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the Crazy 4 Challenges team!
