Elegant Halloween

I do love elegant cards, even for Halloween, so this was really fun to put together.  I started by using my newest stencil, the concentric circles by MFT. Finally remembered to use the technique of inking a stencil (Memento gray & black), spritzing & then laying it on the cardstock.  For this card I randomly wiped off some of the ink before laying it on the cardstock.  The stitching is done with Lil' Inker stitched rectangles.  I black embossed the Memory Box sentiment at the bottom of the panel. The MFT Primitive Pumpkins were die cut from self-adhesive fun foam & then covered with Elizabeth Craft Cool Highlight glitter.  It's the glitter that becomes super smooth & shiny when burnished--really beautiful! Behind the pumpkins is the MFT Elegant Scrollwork die cut.  I attached the panel to the card with foam tape. Here are the challenges I'm entering: Memory Box #5 (black & white), Freshly Made Sketches, Verve October Challenge (black, white & glam) & CAS-ual Chic #4 (stenciling, die cutting, embossing). Thanks so much for stopping by.
