It's time for Freestyle Fridays, and that means that it's Friday.  Woohoo!!!!!!  I don't know why, but I always get excited to see Friday roll around.  With her Halloween project last week, Julie issued a mission for me to create a Halloween project this week using a background stamp, and my project couldn't include anything green.  Even though black and orange are commonly associated with Halloween, somehow I wanted to gravitate toward green, perhaps because it was forbidden.  From the start, I knew that I would use Stampin' Up!'s Perfect Plum because I love this color and also because I have this gorgeous taffeta ribbon.  My other colors are Basic Gray, Basic Black, and Daffodil Delight.  After I stamped the image from "Toxic Treats", I used a Labels Collection Framelits die to cut it and then used sponges to apply Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum, and Cajun Craze ink to color it.  I used a larger die for the Basic Black mat, which I embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  On the Perfect Plum card stock, I stamped the retired "Cheesecloth" image using black ink.  I wish this background stamp wasn't retired because it's one of my most favorite.  Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details was added to the witch's skirt and cape.  Even witches need a little sparkly stuff!  The Silver Sparkle is so . . . well . . . sparkly and is probably my favorite of Stampin' Up!'s Dazzling Details.  Thank you, Julie, for a fun mission and one that had me scrambling to choose something besides green.

Excellent Regina! Using the cheesecloth background really added to the spooky theme of the celebration ahead.
