Classy Halloween Card

Hi Crafters!  Today's post is for the Paper Playtime Challenge.  I'm back on their design team and they have a new setup now.  The first Monday is dedicated to Cricut cuts.  The 3rd Monday is dedicated to sentiments.  This project we are to use buttons, bows and a sentiment.  This is what I came up with.

I love how the button came out.  The button is from a sweater that was snagged so is not usable anymore.  So I snipped off the buttons because I like the big black fat button look.  It ended up being perfect for this project.  I flipped the button over so the bumpy parts are on the bottom and the flat part is the top.  I then stamped the spider from the My Pink Stampers Spook-a-licious stamp set w/ Versamark ink on the button.  Then heat embossed in white.  I put Scor-pal tape on the back edge of the button and wrapped the orange thread around the button.  It turned out really fun.

It's hard to tell in the picture but the white paper has some shiny embossed ghosts on it.  Love the look of it in person.

To participate in the challenge you can submit your project at the bottom of this post (it will show up on the Paper Playtime challenge post as well), or head on over to the Paper Playtime challenge blog to submit your project.  Just needs to have a bow, button and a sentiment.  There is a giveaway involved as well.  Make sure you check it out!  :)
