Witch Candy?

DYSU Challenge Blog     DYSU#38-Duo
{Freshly Made} Sketches     FMS #3-Sketch

I'm closing down for tonight with news--I got published again in Vamp Stamp News Oct 2011 Volume 19 #10. Yes, it's the Halloween issue, my Halloween card made the back cover. Lots of great articles and fellow artists with some great cards and projects.
DYSU is having a design team call also, so I'm entering the card above. They already have some wonderful entries so I don't think I'll make it on this team, but you never know unless you try.
Since Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine, I consider my Halloween cards some of the best I create. This stamp is another new addition to my stash and a friend of mine gifted me the oh so cute bat border punch. 
I embossed the pumpkins with Tangerine Tango on black card stock, and colored these cute legs with SU markers and blender pen.
The 2nd sketch at Freshly Made Sketches was supposed to be square and I didn't full fill that part last time so strangely(and isn't that so Halloween) this time I've a square card for them ;-)
Supplies: 5 1/2" square card blank, Papers: SU-Peach Parfait, Basic Black, Confetti White, Designer Series Paper Frightful Sight, Stamps: Stampabilities-Dotted Circles, Northwoods Rubber Stamps, Inc., Little Yellow Bicycle-HW-210, SU-Fang-tastic, Ink: VersaMark, SU-Tangerine Tango, Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, SU markers-blender pen, Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, Dusty Durango, Early Expresso, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Concord Crush, Basic Gray, Wisteria Wonder,Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight, SU-Tangerine Tango embossing powder, Fiskar bat border punch, SU dimensionals.
