SCREAM!

I don't know why, but I love making Halloween cards. Maybe it's because I like bold, bright, rich colors - and Halloween cards lend themselves to those colors.

I also think there are a lot of cute and fun Halloween images from which to choose.

For instance: Stampin' UP! Frightening Feline




I joined Joyce's Scary Good Halloween card swap just so I'd have an excuse to buy this stamp. LOL!

So, as I always do when I'm creating for a swap, I made a prototype of the card I would make... and then I looked to see if anything needed tweaking before making the other cards. (I'm bad that way!)

Yes, I thought it needed one little/subtle change...




Isn't it funny how rounding one corner makes such a BIG difference? I like it much better this way.





The inside has just a wee bit of color/fun:




Frightening? No, but fun feline, definitely!!!
