Halloween Week 9

Good morning everyone.  Today's card is my Halloween card for the weekly Great Pumpkin Blog Hop #9 and the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #9.  It's hard to believe it's October already.  Can anyone tell me where September went?

This was such a nice easy sketch to work with and had so many possibilities will all the little boxes.  I chose Basic Gray card stock for the base of the card.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the Wicked Cool stamp set on a piece of Howlstooth and Scaringbone designer paper using VersaMark and Black Embossing Powder mixed with Dazzling Diamonds (can't really see the sparkle in the photo).  Black Glimmer Brads were added in the 
corner and the layer attached to the card front.  Four of the images from the Wicked Cool stamp set were heat embossed on Naturals Ivory card stock using VersaMark and Black Embossing Powder mixed with Dazzling Diamonds.  They were punched out with the 1" Square Punch.  Each image was then matted with a piece of Tangerine Tango card stock punched out with the 1-1/4" Square Punch.  Dimensionals were used to pop them up on the card.  A very quick and easy card to put together.  Hope you have a terrific day.
