Totally Gorjuss Challenge card- Stars

 Hello Crafters!

Last week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss was amazing!  You would not believe all the gorgeous Christmas cards posted.  There will be a lot of happy Christmas card recipients this year!

Starting today is a new Totally Gorjuss challenge: stars.  There are so many fun ways to make paper projects with stars and I cannot wait to see all the entries!

For my DT card I thought I would do something different for me: a Halloween card.  Earlier this week I made my first wedding card and now my first Halloween card.  Call me a daredevil.  ;)

The background paper came from various sheets of Graphic 45 paper pads: Place in Time, Steampunk Spells, Happy Haunting and Christmas Past.  The purple background with stars came from the Christmas Past cute!  The cat and spider stamps are Graphic 45's Halloween stamp set SC0579.  (The spider stamp was too cool to not use!  Fussy cutting was kinda tricky but well worth it!)

Black paper was die cut using Spellbinders Branching out for the base.  Shimmer black card stock was die cut from Opulent Ovals to make the frame around the scared kitty.  I applied Stickles as shown and made purple highlights on the cat as a reflection of the night sky.

On the bottom left corner I made a ribbon jumble and added a Halloween paper stamp.

This inside is a continuation of the outside with more Halloween delights!

Hope to see your star creation at Totally Gorjuss!

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your comments!  I really do appreciate them!
