Spooky shaker

Hi stampers...well I didn't get around to my patriotic card today but that's shopping and laundry had to be done if we wanted to eat and wear clean clothes this week!  But I did get a card done that I started on last night.  This one is for the Paper Pal Arts theme challenge this week....and the theme is Halloween!  We all know I LOVE Halloween so I love this time of year and working on Halloween cards and treats!  Too bad I polished off the Halloween M&M's I had the other night or I could make some treats up now, haha.  I should NOT buy them until the day I know I'm going to use them! 

Anyway I used the out on a limb set (which is one of my faves) to make a little shaker card:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Out on a limb, wicked cool, netting, Halloween hang ups (wheel)
Paper:  More mustard, rich razzleberry, lucky limeade, basic black, whisper white
In:  More mustard, basic black, rich razzleberry, lucky limeade
Accessories:  Shaker frames, window sheets, spider web embossing folder, decorative label punch, circle punch, scallop circle punch, mica flakes, basic black polka dot scalloped ribbon, basic rhinestones (whew, that was a lot)

While I had good intentions the shaker kind of turned out like a cross between Halloween and Christmas, lol!  It was rather late when I started working on it and I don't think I was thinking straight as I used some of the new mica flakes in the shaker and it looks like snow, haha!  Oh well, it's still cute and sparkly!  I did get to use my Halloween hang up's wheel at the bottom..I had to break down and get that wheel as I just think it's stinking cute!  I added some spooky "eyes" to my sentiment too.

So Happy Halloween and Merry Christmas all in one card, lol! 

Happy stamping!
