Happy Halloween...

This card came to me in a dream last Holloween... scary, eh?!!  This is one I designed myself.  Creating from scratch is not my forte.  I am usually the "Queen of CASEing"... lol.  So, when I thought this out from start to finish, I was very proud of myself...
How did I do this, you ask?  I started with watercolor paper since it's one of my favorite mediums for it's weight and texture.  I distressed with Tim Holtz' spiced marmalade distress ink and then dry embossed with the Stampin' Up web folder.  Using the vintage photo distress ink, I lightly distressed over the web to help it stand out.  A distress tool is used around the edges.  The sentiment is heat embossed with black ink and clear embossing powder and popped with dimensionals.  I made a dozen for my current box to Operation Write Home which will be shipping in a couple days...
