It's another Tuesday and another fabulous Inspiration Challenge from Beate! This week the piece is this absolutely gorgeous scarf. P-r-e-t-t-y!
I went simple on my card this week and just used the colors as a jumping off point: purple and gray. Since I bought a bunch of Halloween stamps this year I decided I better use one of those sets. Yeah, I bought more than one Halloween set - whatever was I thinking???

Quick card details: I used the Frightful Fence jumbo wheel and Halloween Frights stamp set. The fence was stamped in Perfect Plum on cardstock of the same color. Next I embossed several bats using VersaMark and black embossing powder. To finish the scene I stamped the cat in Basic Grey Classic ink on Whisper White and cut out. I redrew the whiskers using a white gel pen and then adhered to the Perfect Plum layer with dimensionals. Added paper piercing, matted on Basic Black and added three brads. The next layer is a piece of Kraft cardstock on which I adhered an Elegant Eggplant strip across the top before wrapping with ribbon (Black gingham and Basic Gray taffeta) and knotting. To the bottom of this layer I stamped a sentiment in Basic Black. This layer was adhered to a Basic Gray cardbase and then the main image was affixed with dimensionals.
