Come join us! Retro Rubber challenge #49! Halloween!

Hi there!  Today it is time for Retro Rubber Challenge Blog's 49th challenge!  The theme this time involves using a theme of Halloween and a stamp one year old or older.  Too fun!  Here is the card that I created for this challenge and the theme challenge image:

To create this card, I took white cardstock and transformed it into an invitation sized card.  I trimmed and folded accordingly.  I rounded all four corners using my EK Success corner rounder.  Next, I added a sticker at the top from SRM Press.

Next I added some retro patterned paper that I love!  I added a small strip of black cardstock at the top of the patterned paper.  Using my Mini Misti and a stamp I bought at a craft show (Jean Arneson? 2013?). a few years ago I stamped in black ink onto white cardstock.  Using my Copic Markers I colored the image using colors that coordinated with my patterned paper.  Using Pop Dots I added this image to the card.  Then I restamped the image and cut off the cat's tail section and added that atop the original image for added dimension.  Again I used a Pop Dot.

I added a sentiment sticker from SRM, and two gems.  Then I added a small strip of black cardstock near the bottom and added a SRM rickrack style sticker.  Finally, I added a sticker from SRM matching the one at the top of the card.  

I love how vivid this card turned out!  Happy Halloween!

I'd love to see your creations for this challenge!  So come join the fun!  Visit the Retro Rubber Blog today, then revisit one week from this coming Sunday, to learn the challenge winner
