Mojo Monday 109

Woohoo! I'm back at last! I feel like it's been forever since I've posted and guess what...it has!!
We had a great vacation in California during the last 2 weeks of September. I've been crazy busy since I got back from vacation and just couldn't find my mojo for card making. I guess this week's Mojo sketch just inspired me....plus I needed a couple extra Halloween cards:) I hope all of you are still out there keeping an eye out for me. I hope to get back into full swing next week with at least 2 cards a week again.

Here are the details of my card:

The DP is by Reminisce. The red cardstock is SU Ruby Red. The black piece on the bottom is the reverse of the DP which I texturized with a CB embossing folder. The image and sentiment are SU. I double stamped the dog and colored him with prismacolor pencils, then cut out and popped the second doggie over the original one. I used MS's web and goo edge punches for accents (I love both of these for Halloween). I added some piercing around the sentiment and image and on the red strip below the image. Finally, I punched and popped a spider below the sentiment and added the shiny bat (from my stash) as a substitute for the bow shown on the sketch. I'm thinking of sending this to my sister with her Halloween chocolate. It would be oh so appropriate. Thanks for stopping by:))
