Halloween Wreath - Fusion Card Challenge

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having a great day!  Wow we are working our way through this week fast right?  I've got a great challenge for you today - here's the latest from Fusion Card Challenge.  Check out that cool Halloween inspiration photo!  I LOVE HALLOWEEN!   It's really my favorite holiday!  I love seeing all the costumes.  Isn't it sort of magical  how you can be transformed into someone else just for one day?    Our neighborhood will be alive with kids going house to house!  I'll be on the front porch handing out goodies.  I'll have Mori with me - I dont know who will be more afraid - the kids seeing a big dog, or the big dog seeing all the scary children! 

OK .. down to business... so check out the photo - what do you love?  I jumped on the colors and that big wreath.   You don't celebrate Halloween? That's ok.  You can use the sketch instead.   If you want to be a real trixie - mix the sketch and the photo together. 
I made a panel of pattern paper - just three strips taped together and then cut down to fit the front of my card base.  Next I cut the wreath die from the panel, inlayed the die in black, and then pieced it all back together like a jigsaw puzzle.
The twig wreath die is from Serendipity Stamps and comes with all the little dies you see here (and more!)  I adhered the ghosties and pumpkins with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension, and a sprinkle of sequin "berries" for color and shine.  I thought the little skulls would look neat hanging from the bow - and yes.. a little bat flying off into the distance!   Spoooky!

 

OK now it's your turn!  Ready to play?!  I hope I see you at FUSION Card Challenge.  If you need a little more inspiration the DT is sure to get you motivated!
