Halloween Photo Inspiration Challenge

Halloween is only twenty days away! If you're needing some different inspiration to inspire your creative juices, I may have just what your looking for. This week I went searching for something unique and I found this fun hand painted Jack-O-Lantern at a local garden center called Under the Sun. Immediately I knew it would make for an interesting challenge. There are so many different ways to get inspired from this photo and I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

For my card I chose to use patterned paper for my Jack-O-Lanterns. I used paper from American Crafts and Stampin' Up!. The outline of the pumpkins were heat embossed and then I stamped the faces using Jet Black StazOn ink. The stamp set is by Hampton Art and the Happy Halloween borders are by My Mind's Eye. It was a lot of fun to create this card and I hope it inspires you to play along.
