Chills, Thrills & a Charmed Pumpkin

Ready for some more haunted?
The card is for today's sketch challenge on SCS. Just a quick and simple one....with lots of white craft ink smeared all over it! :-)
Chills & Thrills Recipe:
Stamps: haunted
Paper: haunted, basic black, PTI cardstock
Ink: memento tuxedo black, white craft
Accessories: Haunted blackboard, spiderweb cuttlebug folder, PTI ribbon, rhinestone stickers


Okay, if you are like me, you have a stack of hatpins left over from your pretties kit. Well now you have a new use for them: Pumpkin Charms! Aren't they fun? I picked this pumpkin from my garden...do you notice all it's imperfections? I started off by painting it and glittering it up on the top. The hatpins work perfectly because you can move them around the pumpkin and the little hanging charms can be switched.
Pumpkin Charms Recipe:
Paper: haunted dp
Ink: white craft
Accessories: pretties kit, jump rings, bazzill chips, cropadile, ghost rhinestones, rhinestone stickers, haunted blackboard, sweet mix blackboard, black copic marker, making memories paint, copper canyon glitter, 1 3/8" circle punch
