With the temperatures cooling off my mind is on fall! So, I decided to make a Halloween card! This image is from the Trick or Treat set. I colored the image with Prisma pencils and Gamsol. (Hadn't used those babies in awhile! : ) I created a shadow box using 2 oval Spellbinder's Nestibilities and popped it up with dimensional foam circles. I used Labels 14 for the back of the ovals and added my Nestabling from Want2Scrap. The sentiment is from the Halloween Sentiment's set and was hand cut. I added a rhinestone from Want2Scrap. I used Lacy Squares from Spellbinders to peek out from both sides.

A very lumpy, bumpy dimensional card! ; ) Just how I like 'em!

Be sure to visit the other talented designer's blogs for more inspiration! And if you've missed the other few days you can link back to the manufacturer's blogs up above!
