With boys at the door saying, “Trick or treat!”

A second Hallowe’en card I made over the weekend features a cute image from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps from the A Treat for Someone Sweet! set.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches.  I got some fab Hallowe’en themed sequins from Neat & Tangled so I decided to make the vertical rectangle element a shaker panel.  I inked the background to the panel in purples and added some glitter with a Wink of Stella pen.  I didn’t have a stamp or sticker to suit for the sentiment panel so I simply wrote my sentiment in Enamel Accents and matted to match the card base.  I swapped out the heart element with my cute little image.  And no way was I fussy cutting his antenna so I made my own with a bit of wire and a drop of Enamel Accents.

Over at Dream Valley they are looking for projects for boys.  I deliberately went with the unfussy design of this card and the image choice of a boy trick or treating as it is going out to a boy.  Well, a rather grown-up one but judging by the way this one goes for the lolly jar at work I reckon there’s a little boy still very much inside him!  The Male Room are also looking for male Hallowe’en projects so I am also entering my card in their challenge.
