Happy Haunting

I am not really into Halloween, BUT, there are some cute stamps out there and one of them is this set by Lawn Fawn called Happy Haunting.  So I thought I would use it and make a very simple card to enter into the Lawnscaping embossing challenge.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah
Ink: Memento; Copics
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Happy Haunting)
Other: CB Embossing Folder - Branches; Glossy Accent

I like how that embossing folder works on black cardstock.  I also added some glossy accents to the "yellow lit areas" on the card.  I do feel that something is missing, not sure what though.

I just had a great 10 mile run in temperatures of upper 70's, oh that felt so good after being over 100F for so long!

Just a short post today!  I may be back later. Have a great day!

Cute! Love your embossing! I also like the grayish house that looks like the lights are on. I used this set for my card on the Lawnscaping Blog Hop - come take a look if you get a chance. I love this set for Halloween.

Your background does look amazing Brenda. And the bright yellow of the house lights is fun. Will be watching South Africa play Wales tonight... will be thinking of you! My hubby's BIL is from Zimbabwe so one family member supporting SA all the way!
