Serene Silhouettes Halloween Card for Dynamic Duos

Hi there, okee dokee you know what I have been doing today. LOL! Yes, I want to get this posted tonight for the Dynamic Duo's because tomorrow I work late and have to do tomatoes. I didn't feel like it tonight. I decided to do this River Rock and Black Dynamic Duo Color Challenge and make a Halloween card.  I know out the Serene Silhouettes stamp set. Go figure, huh?  Eek my mind is warped. LOL!  I used 3 sets on this card and after I stamp the inside it will be 4. This stamp reminds me of that Alfred Hitchcock movie. Did you ever see it? The Birds. Oh man, I can remember it clear as mud. When I was a teenager I was babysitting and that movie came on and I watched it and I was so darn scared I couldn't wait for the parents to come home so I could get home to get under my covers and hide. Spooky! 

My base card stock is Basic Black and then I layered a piece of River Rock that I had textured with the Lacy Brocade EF. Then I tied some Black Scallop Dots Ribbon around it with the dot side down. I cut out a shape from the Window Frames Collection of Framelits and textured that also with the Lacy Brocade EF. I stamped the Serene Silhouette stamp in black ink onto River Rock Card Stock and punched it out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch. Then I stamped the Eeek from the Spooky Bingo Bits and attached that to the Window Frame die cut. Then I stamped the witches and goblins stamp from Toxic Treats and cut it out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits but once again it was to little so I moved the bottom of the framelit up and put it through again centering it into the framelit. It made a cute tag don't you think? I used the Paper Piercing Tool and Mat and made a hole for my Black Brad. I sponged around that piece and the circle and called it good. 

Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Serene Silhouettes, Spooky Bingo Bits, Toxic Treats
Card Stock: Basic Black, River Rock
Inks: Basic Black
Tools: Big Shot, Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Window Frames Collection Framelits, Apothecary Accents Framelits, 3/16" Brads in Neutrals, 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon, Dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Monday. Dang, I hope I don't have nightmares now thinking about that movie. Hugs, Bev
