Trio of Mini Halloween Cards

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited for Halloween coming up.  My husband and I really enjoy the holiday, so I figured I'd start nice and early on some fun projects.

This fun little trio of cards is my last project as a design team member for Scrapbookaholic By Abby.  It's been SO much fun!!!  Be sure and head over there today to see the rest of the design team's fabulous creations.

The cards are all 3 by 3 black cardstock.  

I went around the edges with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  It writes so smoothly and really showed up well against the black.

All of my images are cut from the Cricut Cartridge called Happy Hauntings.  I cut them all at 2.5 inches, but I had to use real dial size for the bride of Frankenstein head because she was a tiny part of a larger frame.

I used three fun colors of twine from The Twinery in Lilac, Mandarin, and Stone.

The images are all attached with pop dots to give them some dimension.  I used some Stickles for Bride of Frankenstein's hair and a did some inking and embossed lines on the pumpkin (but they didn't show at all in the photograph *LOL*)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Being on this design team has been a lot of fun :)  I've been glad to share the fun with the rest of the team, and would like the thank the lovely Abby for having me as part of it!
