Shake Your Booty

My first Halloween card for the year!  I'm thinking I need to get with the program on these even though I only send out about 5 or 6 of them.  Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are all creeping up on us fast!


I used one of the images from a new SU set called Bootiful Occasions.  I colored the dots on this with an orange marker and then added the orangish (that's not really a word!! LOL) rhinestone....added a little twine, button, DP, and scallops.  I did both dry and heat embossing - the orange is dry embossed using the Swiss Dots folder and the image and sentiment were heat embossed with black.


I'll enter this in the challenges at Retro Sketch (Sketch), A Blog Named Hero (Embossing) and Card Cupids (Halloween).

Thanks for stopping by........

Great witch's boot, Lynn! Love the polka dots on it and on the paper. I guess I need to think about a Halloween card or two myself. I've been doing Christmas cards but haven't thought about Halloween yet. This is a great inspiration. :-D
