Inspiration Station Challenge #39 - Trick or Treat

Hello Friends!  It's Monday and today begins a new bi-weekly challenge round at The Inspiration Station Challenge Blog.  The photo prompt this challenge is:

We still get Trick or Treaters in my neighborhood and we have several homes that decorate their porches and lawns.  Our dear friends to the west of us go all out with decorating and I look forward to seeing what they come up with each year.  This photo inspired me to use a darling Halloween set I've had in my stash since last season but not used before.

I've used the Llama Halloween Stamp Set from Darcie's Heart and Home to create a standard A2 sized card.  This little Trick or Treater has been colored using alcohol markers and the designer papers are from the Echo Park "Trick or Treat" 6x6 paper pad.  The sentiment is included in the stamp set.

The orange mat has been dry embossed using an older Halloween Embossing Folder from Darice.  I wanted the images to stand out so I lightly inked over the embossing with Unicorn White Ink from Hero Arts.  The focal image has been die cut using nesting circle dies from Kat Scrappiness and to complete the design, I've added sequins from a Halloween Mix, also from Kat Scrappiness.

Please join in the fun at The Inspiration Station this challenge round.  We always enjoy seeing how the photo inspires.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
