Halloween Cat in the Moon

Happy Friday!
I hope your week is going well! Quick..don't look at the calendar. Uh oh. You looked. Friday the 13th. Oh No!! And a card w/ black cats!! I'm thinking that one black cat might have been bad luck, but two?? They probably cancel each other eating cake & a diet coke. Actually, Friday the 13th has historically not been a bad day for me. I even had some surgery on an Friday the 13th and it all turned out fine. Monday, the 16th is a different story. One Monday the 16th, a car crashed into my car. Another Monday the 16th, I broke my vs. bicycle type accident. Don't have that bicycle anymore. Think I'll stay home on Monday, just to be safe. 

Anyway, I love making Halloween cards...they are just so fun! This one started with a sketch on Splitcoast that gave me a few fits. Don't know why but I had trouble with it. After playing w/ it for quite a while, I finally arrived at what you see here.

For the cat in the moon, I used a few yellow Copics then die cut using a big circle. I did the same for the sentiment and the two ring frames around the fussy cut cat & mouse, are actually from the sentiment die cuts. I had to make them a little smaller & I liked the way they looked instead of another full circle image. I added some stamped white stars on top and some starry ribbon across the bottom of the fence. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend and a lucky Monday!

Love that one little yellow star and the layout is amazing! The day's not over, but this 13th has proved to be one of the strangest in a long time :)

Love how you used that layout to show off those stamps! Love how you added the stars and the fence too--they are a nice addition to the scene you created.

What a great card. Love all of the little points of interest. The black, yellow and white look fabulous together.
