Fa-boo-lous Celebration!

To enter my giveaway in celebration of Fa-boo-lous Halloween week, please click here.
Today I am a guest designer featured on the Happy Life, Crafty Wife blog.  Tamara has been celebrating a Fa-boo-lous Halloween week with lots of inspiration and giveaways and I am honored to be part of the celebration.  Please thank our sponsors for todays's giveaway Trendy Twine and My Thoughts Exactly by becoming a fan of their Facebook pages.
For my project, I created this standard A2 sized card using some fun Halloween themed paper.  I added a web border and a couple of smaller webs to my card from two different Martha Stewart border punches.  The patterned paper already included the "caution" sentiment.
The mummy was cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge and wrapped in Black Licorice Trendy Twine.  I added a couple of wiggly eyes to finish him off.
The mummy was then centered on an oval and adhered to the card.  I added a small tulle bow to the top of the card with a Lime Licorice Trendy Twine bow.
