A Mix of Old and New

I pulled out an old SU Halloween stamp set to make this card. It was one of the first ones I bought back in 2003 or 2004 (I'm guessing) That's where the spider comes from. The web and the "trick or treat" comes from a new stamp set I got as blogcandy. I also used a little digi image of a mouse for this card. Here are the challenges that I used to help me make this card:
2 Red Bananas: use the colors purple, orange and black
Digital Tuesday Challenge: use a digi image and make a Halloween card
Spoonful of Sugar: Used their sketch
Papertake Weekly: a spooky Halloween card (spiders..EEK!)
Tuesday Taggers: use the digi mouse image
Just Buggin': Use a die cut that starts with the letter B ("bag" for my card)
It's frustrating to use this purple. I love the color but for some reason it photographs as a much more "blue" purple. Trust me, it's a very dark purple. :)
Card Recipie:
Images: web and trick or treat: Inkadinkadoo "halloween", Spider: SU!, Mouse: Delicious Doodles
Copics: R00,C5,V17,RV00,100
Die Cuts: Doodlecharms "bag" cut at 1"
Embossing folder: Swiss Dots
Other: pop dots, candycorn stickers
