Googly Ghouls Halloween Card

Good morning stamping buddies, I hope you have a terrific Thursday. I have a headache it feels like. I have to work the late shift today so have time to post this. ARGH, late last night a friend called me to see if I needed tomatoes. Just shoot me okay, because I told her yes. So her and her husband brought over 3 flats of them.  They are really nice and big and ripe so I can blanch them Friday night and can this coming weekend. Then I am done, if I have them finished or not. I can take some home with me I suppose to eat but they might not last that long. I don't leave until the 12th or 13th so I am not sure if they will still be good. 

I made this card for Unscripted Sketches and Freshly Made Sketch if they will except it. My border goes the opposite way so I hope it will be okay. They can always boot me out if not.  I used the Basic Black for my card base and layered the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP on top of that. Then I stamped the Border Banter words in Basic Black and  then the Chevron stamp  in More Mustard on  More Mustard Card Stock. Then on Very Vanilla Card Stock I stamped the mummy from Googly Ghouls stamp set in Basic Black ink and then the greeting in More Mustard and that is from the Wacky Wishes stamp set. I die cut that out with the Labels Collection Framelits and sponged around it in Basic Black ink. I added a googly eye from the Googlies. Then I tied a bow with the Striped Satin Ribbon and attached it with mini Glue Dots. It was really a very easy card.

Here are the details: 
Stamp Sets:  Googly Ghouls, Wacky Wishes, Border Banter
Card Stock: Basic Black, More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP
Inks: Basic Black, More Mustard
Accessories and Tools: Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelits, 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon, Googly Eyes, Sponge, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots.
