Trick-or-Treating With Anya and the Gang

Hi! When I started this card I meant to use the sketch posted on The Greeting Farm blog for Farm Fresh Friday last week. I loved how Kim Nath turned the big circle element on the sketch into the moon (on her card HERE ) and so I blatantly copied that! But then, because I wanted to put at least 3 trick-or-treaters on the card I left myself no room for the other elements from the sketch!
For the moon I used one of my circle nestabilities as a mask and sponged a little Bodering Blue, then covered that with VeraMark ink and embossed with clear. Then I sponged around that with Taken With Teal, Night of Navy and Elegant Eggplant (all craft ink - I seem to have better luck sponging with Craft ink). The bats are from an EK Sucess punch. The frame is popped up, then my trick-or-treaters (I like to think of big Sis Anya dressing up and taking the little one's out for candy!) are popped up and layered on top of that. Anya's dress is covered with Star Dust stickels, and the treat bags are pieces of candy corn cut from the DP with thread handles added and faces drawn on.

The Details:
Stamps: Princess Anya, Witch from Spooktacular, Lion from Wild Things - The Greeting Farm
Paper: K&Co, Elegant Eggplant - Su, PTI white
Skin: R00,E00,R20,E11
Hair (all 3):E11,E13,E15,E18
Lion: Y21,Y23,Y26,E44,E47,E49

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your day is wonderful!
