Waltzingmouse October Pajama Party

I've got my pj's on and am ready to check out some Halloween cards...Waltzingmouse-style.  No one does Halloween better than Claire and her latest release gave us lots of stamps to choose from to create some spooky Halloween cards.

I am playing along with the challenge to create a Victorian or vintage style Halloween card.   Totally not my normal style, rarely do I use anything Victorian or vintage, but I do have a new stamp set to play with and it didn't take long to find an image to go with it.  I'm talking about Waltzingmouse's Spooky Tree Backgrounder.  Here's my entry into the Victorian Ghost Challenge category:
I also used my cameo on this card...the ornate frame is a cut file and the raven is a print and cut.  I stamped my Spooky Tree background on a piece of patterned paper and adhered a sheet of vellum on top of it.  The sentiment is embossed onto the vellum and is from last years Waltzingmouse set, Hocus Pocus.  I added a big poofy bow, some stitching, stickpins and a button/brad combination.

There is plenty of time to play along with this month's challenges...here's a link for all the details.


Love, love, love this Cathy!! what wonderful papers and colors - that be-hatted raven looks great sitting on that framing with the wonderful bow! and your spooky tree is the perfect backdrop!

Love your Spooky Tree with the vellum over it!! So cool! And it looks great with the patterned paper too! Fabulous!

Wow--this is just fabulous. Not your usual style, but you are showing your talent--that you can make any style work. So many fabulous touches here, including that wonderful bow with the cool chevron ribbon, your stitching, and that amazing spooky tree behind the vellum.

Oh my! Love the colours and that fabulous bow and pins! But it's the elegant frame and fun(!) raven that really catch the eye. Lovely card!

Oh Cathy! I love all the layers and patterns, and detailing and bow and pins! Just up my alley!

lovely card, Cathy.
Love from Holland.

Cracking card Cathy, LOVE the heavily patterned paper behind him! super image and I love the velum over the spooky tree, a super card! Thank you so much for playing along with us!

Such imagination and creativity with this amazing card. Your combination of patterned paper, and the great stitching adds so much for this Halloween card. Love how the spook tree looks as a soft muted background for this image. LOVE this. So sorry it took me so long to reply, but I was gone over the weekend, and now am trying to get caught up.
