Embellish Magazine Color Challenge Using Squares #2

Hi everyone! I have a cute card for you tonight. It's my second submission for the Embellish Magazine Color Challenge Using Squares. I wasn't that happy with my first one, so I made another one! I've never made a Halloween card ever since I started card making. Since the colors were so festively Halloween-ish, I used this perfect opportunity to make my first Halloween card.

The challenge was to use squares. I cut out 1.25 x 1.25 squares and embossed them using my ProvoCraft embossing folder. I loved that square pattern so much, it reminded me of cobwebs. I also used a new stamp set that I had just purchased. It's Trick or Treat from Inkadinkado. I just love all the cute characters on it!!! Aren't they just adorable? I stamped one on top of the other to make it just a little bit more whimsical. Then I used my water pen to color in the images. I also inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink to add more depth to the image. 

I really had fun making this card. I guess that means I'll be trying my hand at more Halloween cards! Here's Embellish Magazine's Color Challenge Using Squares, and here's my card. Thanks for stopping by!
