SHOPPING OUR STASH #174 - Halloween or Halloween colors

Hello and good morning, my crafty peeps! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH we challenge you to make a Halloween card/project, or something that uses Halloween colors (black, orange, green, purple, red) This being my favorite holiday, I was all over it! Here's what I made:

 the inside:

I'm guilty of buying supplies, then not using them. Lately I've been trying to remedy that. The paper collection is from last year, the stamp I bought earlier this year and it's the first time getting inked. That ribbon was one of the first rolls I bought when I started scrapbooking back in 2007. ☺ After coloring the martini, I added a few white lines on the left side for highlights, then went over it all with Glossy Accents. 

 eyeball-tinis, yum!

Ok, so now it's time for you to make one more Halloween card! Just be sure to link it up at Shopping Our Stash! Please be sure to check out what my teammates, and our GD - Ira, created for your viewing pleasure! Thanks for stopping in! Have a great day!
