Twick or Tweet

The theme for the Pals Paper Arts challenge today is Halloween. What fun!!! I used one of the stamps from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini being released September 1st. It's called "Twick or Tweet". What a cute name for a Halloween stamp set, don't you think?

This card has many layers. I started with a black card base. I wanted to "pop" the Rich Razzleberry so I first embossed it with a Stampin' Up! Texturz Plate and then glued it on top of Crushed Curry just leaving a hint of the Curry color show.

The little tweety bird is standing in grass I drew freehand to tie in my Old Olive color Top Note die cut. If you have any questions about this or any other creation of mine, please don't hesitate to e-mail me or leave me a comment at the end of this post for more directions. I would be more than happy to share!
