Dance and gleam...

Hello, hello!

I’ve got a sweet Halloween card to share with you today. There are certainly many fantastic Halloween stamps and digis to be found in the TGF store but it can be just as much fun to take a character that wasn’t intended for the holiday and transform them into a terrific trick or treater. That’s what I did with little Joni from the Hatter Bean kit. The over-the-top costumes of these quirky Beans, with their top hats and exaggerated adornments, make them super easy to color into Halloween cuties. I then added the happy pumpkin from the Peek a Boo set so that Joni would have a friend to keep her company, plus I liked how it tied in to the sentiment that I chose for the card. I also cut the strip of pattern paper to the same width as the sentiment to keep the design nice and tight down the center of the card. 

Ok, hope your week is off to a great start!
