Sequins & Chevrons

Never seem to get a card made for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge & they have really fun themes. This one, however, came close to stumping me. Thank goodness it finally hit me that I had chevron Washi tape for Halloween!  I simply made a background with the tape & glued my white sequins between the rows. I'd never inked this cute Stampendous! jack-o-lantern which I colored with markers & covered with Crystal Lacquer for a nice shine.  Isn't the font cool on this Northwoods stamp? Fun, simple card & finished in the nick of time!  I'm also entering the PaperCrafts October Galery Challenge.  
Thank you so much for taking time to leave a comment--I appreciate it.

Love that tape! We were playing with some just like that this morning. But we didn't have that cute Jack-o-lantern or sequins to put on it! This is really fun for Halloween!
