A Halloween Birthday

As mentioned yesterday, I am working on a big card order right now. Two cards that she needed are Halloween themed birthday cards. Halloween is by far my favorite holiday, so I would LOVE to receive a Halloween themed birthday card (hint hint, my birthday is in May!). For this card I used my favorite set as of late, Seasons of Friendship, along with the new Spooky Treats rub ons. I love that both black and white come in the same package because then you can use them on any color. Plus, unlike stamps, which you can sometimes mess up by stamping crooked or not fully inking the image, you CANNOT mess up a rub on and get perfect placement every time! Even if you notice the image is not fully transfered, simply lay it back down and keep rubbing until it is!

I will post the second Halloween themed birthday card tomorrow :)

Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Whisper White, Summer Sun
