Boo! - the October WMS Blog Party

Today I'm excited to be joining the WMS Blog Party - which happens the 17th of each month!  On the first of each month, Lynn announces the theme of the party over at the WMS blog so we have plenty of time to create our cards!

This month it's a color challenge -  to use Orange, Purple and Black -  wonderful colors for Halloween!!!  and that's just the kind of card I made:
I used stamps from Cicely at Halloween - the fun little set with the beautiful Cicely (companion to Gracie at Halloween - another cute witch set!)  Cicely is colored with Copics and framed by a Floral Doily Motif Nestability.  I embossed the orange panel with Square Lattice by SU. My card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 - my favorite size!

On the inside I stamped this vintage poem and  pumpkin from the Cicely set.

You have until 1:30 pm EST Thursday 10/18 to link up your card at the WMS blog here.  Let's go over there to see all the cards everyone has created in these great fall colors!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Cicely at Halloween
Paper:  White, True Black, Orange Zest, Royal Velvet - PTI
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  1 3/4" circle punch - SU, floral doily motif - Nestability, square lattice embossing folder - SU, Copics: V12, BV08, N6, T6, E00, YR07, R20
