OWH Sketch 132 - Hall-no-ween cards

Happy Sunday!  I spent very little time crafting today - boo hoo.  I'm resisting the temptation to buy Halloween paper because next weekend I'm going to the CK Convention in Charlotte and I'm sure I'll buy paper there.  So, I had to go thru my paper stash and get ideas. 

I started by purchasing a set of Halloween backgrounds from the talented Patricia Zapata here: Halloween backgrounds.  I made this square 4.25 x 4.25 card with the spider web and embossed the "Boo!" in white behind it:

Next, I used the pumpkin background to make this card.  I think it's rather ho-hum:
I used today's OWH sketch to make several cards.  I pieced the purple, orange and green paper together, then embossed it with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I had to make my own Halloween paper!  Then I embossed the purple background with clear powder, using a background stamp from Impression Obsession.
The white embossed "Boo!" was a bit messy, but I though that gave the card a more Halloween feel.  This is the sketch I used for the card:
I hope you're having fun with this sketch too!  I enjoy looking at what the other talented ladies create - there's so many ideas for inspiration!
