To Trick or To Treat?

Hi friends.  I hope you all had a good weekend and were able to squeeze in some crafting time.  My eyes are coming along, but still very painful if they get too much light, so I'm not taking time to comment on blogs yet.  But I am briefly visiting a few blogs each day now as long as I have my  dark glasses on, so I'm making progress.

The  digital tree image and bats on this card are freebies from Create with TLC.  The digital sentiment is a freebie from Artifact by Rebecca.  The moon is a circle that I cut out and inked and the background paper is some Basic Grey from my stash.  I used some vintage seam binding for the bow.  I cut the tree and bats out by hand.
 Here's a close up that shows the awesome texture in my vintage seam binding.  I love how it is frayed with age.
 And a close up of the sentiment.  I want to be sure everyone can read it.  It's such a great sentiment. :)

Blessings
  • Phone time with my mom

Have a fabulous day!!!

Inky hugs!

Rebecca, the ribbon is some vintage seam binding. It is literally frayed with age. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. :)
