Daring Cardmakers - Halloween Frame Card

Daring Cardmakers dared us to use a frame on a card.


I've been totally into "using what I have". I searched through my stash and "found" this fantastic Lil' Davis green chipboard frame and "pumpkin patch" chipboard piece. The pumpkin patch chipboard piece is on pop dots. I had stamped the pumpkin trio from Stampin' Up's "Spooktacular Greetings" last week, colored them with Stampin' Up watercolor pencils, and they were just sitting on my desk waiting to be used on a Haunting Halloween card! The scraps of paper on the card front are from Karen foster (the orange strip), and Basic Grey (the green one). I tied pumpkin ribbon around the frame. The ribbon is from the Target $1 spot from a couple of years ago. I'm thrilled with the way this card turned out. I love it! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!
