Hi everyone! Happy Monday!!

Here is a card I created for today's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG76, which is brought to us by the Trendsetter of the Week, Piali!

Piali has challenged one and all to create a card using the following recipe:

- Kraft Card Base (check)
- Black, White and a splash of color (I went with orange - check
- Dry Embossing (I used the Spiderwebs EF and the Polka Dots EF - check)

This was SO much fun to make!! I started with Saturday's sketch from The Sweet Stop, SSS77! I stamped this ADORABLE ghost from the newly released Hauntingly Delightful set from There She Goes in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed the panel with Circle Nestabilities and layered it over orange cardstock cut from Circle Nestabilities and black cardstock cut from the new Lacey Circles Nestabilities. I used the same layers and Nestabilities for the sentiment, "Boo", also from Hauntingly Delightful. I added a bit of paper piercing around the orange layers on both.

I embossed the white panel with Spiderwebs Embossing Folder, and the orange and kraft panels with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder. All of the layers were sewn on my sewing machine and I added some baby braddies to the top left and bottom right corners.

The polka dot patterned paper is from Happy Halloween by Echo Park Papers and I created the double bows of orange grosgrain and black gingham with the Bow Easy. I attached a fun Happy Halloween button to the center of my bows (which I sewed upside down - baby brain!) from my stash.

We would LOVE you to play along! Simply create a card using the above recipe and link your creation to today's TSG76 post on the There She Goes Blog! The challenge is open until the winner is announced on the following Monday (10-18-10). The winner will receive a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the There She Goes Store!
