It's Boo-tiful Day!

For this card I decided to look for inspiration from Pintrest.  I knew I wanted a circular image ever since I picked up the Witches Dust Halloween Doilys by Recollections at Michael's.  They come with 4 designs, 2 in black and 2 in orange. 

 I found the sketch I wanted to use from here.  I kept it pretty simple.  The images are from Hampton Art.  I really liked having the stars and moons "hang" from the banner.  I did move my orange sparkle flower a bit down so you could see the stars and moon mobile.  The ivory paper is from Recollections.  The orange banner I cut using my Big Shot with a papertry ink banner die out of Colorbox orange paper.  The orange flower I made using a QuickCutz nesting flower die out of glitter paper by American Crafts.  I colored all the stamped images with my sharpies.  I used StazOn black because I knew it would withstand the coloring.  The silver brad I added from my stash and it is by The Paper Studio's Spare Parts.

I am not as happy with my coloring job as I would like to be.  I am still working on it and someday I am going to have to brave things and start my copic marker collection, but I am not there yet.  Coloring things and knowing how to shade and highlight is not one of my best skills.

I also used my envelope punch board to make an envelope for this card to go it.  I did have one that would meet the needed dimensions in my stash since my doily and flower peak over the edges.  For that I used a some patterned paper from the Tattered and Worn Paper collection by Recollections.
