Halloween Spirit - RCC73

Rather than weekly challenges just for fun, we are now doing monthly challenges on the Ribbon Carousel Blog, with a fabulous prize for one lucky random challenge participant! The RC DT is divided up into two teams, half of the team will be posting challenge inspiration on the First Tuesday of the Month and the other half of the team will be posting on the Third Tuesday of the Month. This months theme is Halloween Spirit.

I used images from the Artistic Outpost Gothic 31 plate, along with papers from the Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor paper pad to create my card.

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Gothic 31

I added a few stamped spiders to the pattern paper, the skeleton image was stamped on a scrap of EP Chillingsworth pattern paper, then die cut with Spellbinders Oval Dies, layered on a Black Oval and popped up on the frame panel.  The spider web die cut edge is from SVG Cuts Toil and Trouble Kit, cut from Black card stock using the Silhouette Cameo.  To embellish I added two Double Bows tied with Becca's Peg Bow Maker; one from Black Vintage Seam Binding, the other from Orange/Black Checked Ribbon, and a Green Button tied with Black Hemp.
