Paper Players #65 - Piece of Poision

Card Front

I decided to use the sketch #65 from The Paper Players Challenge for this Halloween Card.  I have two teenage boys and thought this card would be prefect for my oldest.  The stamp set is from the Holiday Mini, Piece of Poison.  I know that this Stamp Set, may be a little too creepy for some, but I find it prefect for those creepy Halloween Projects. 

I also used the "Pick your Poison Designer Series Paper" from the Holiday Mini that coordinates perfectly with the stamp set I used. I am loving the classic Halloween Colors; Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla.  I felt that distressing was in order for this creepy card and of course some sponging with Black Ink and a little Soft Suede (I felt it gave it that nice vintage feel).     

Thanks for stopping by,
