Cheery Lynn Halloween Thank You


Hello!  I'm posting today with a Cheery Lynn Halloween inspired Thank You card.  I've been on a Halloween kick lately since I'm helping plan a large Halloween party at my children's school.  
I began by cutting the largest square of the Horizon Square Boutique Stacker.  I glued it to a white 5.5" card that I'd cut down slightly so the scalloped edge of the die cut would show without a backer. I layered a piece of black design paper on top using foam adhesive.  I then used more foam adhesive to secure the orange Felicity Doily to the front of the card.    

The flowers were created using the  Black Eyed Susan Strip die.  I shaped them a little with a stylus and molding mat and curled the orange center with a quilling tool. The leaves are from the Crafty Ann Flourish #13 die.  The leaves were colored lightly with an orange distress ink.  I added some black Dandelions around the flowers too.  I love using these for a little added texture in paper floral arrangements.


I tucked in white Add a flourish flourishes underneath the Felicity Doily and then glued the Thank You # 2 to the center.  I waited until the end to glue the sentiment so it wasn't obscured by the flowers.  Last I added a few black rhinestones randomly to the edges of the card for a little sparkle.
