Frightfully Spooky

Hello! Today I'm sharing a Halloween card I made using this super fun sketch from Seize The Sketch Challenge #6:

Here's my take:


I just LOVE the Thrilling 6x6 Bundle from Authentique, so I decided to make a coordinating bubble gum treat holder too:


I'm going to ship these off to my eight year-old nephew along with a Barnes and Noble gift card (he LOVES to read) and this fun little pencil snake that I whipped up:


I hope he gets a kick out of his Halloween treats!

Thanks for stopping by!
