Halloween Birthday

Okay, I promise, this is the last Halloween card for the year. I had such a blast making them, I need to start posting them earlier! Then again, the left over candy is still lingering in my house, so the season hasn't totally left us. The card is one I decided to redo since I wasn't really thrilled with the original (it was from my earlier stamping days).

This card was made for a Halloween Birthday, or so I thought. For some reason, my brain was positive this person's birthday was on Halloween. I don't remember how or why I thought this, and since I didn't usually send them a card, had not been corrected. Until now. This has been a difficult year for her and I wanted to let her know I was thinking of her, on what I thought was a special day. Thankfully she's got a great sense of humor and considered the card either really late or early (actual birthday is in March). LOL - we both had a good chuckle. This is an example of where the thought is what counts and she was touched that she'd been on my heart lately.

Here's what the card looked like before:

Not totally horrible, but I jazzed it up to look like this:

Tricky to see in the photo, but I colored over the stamped candy corn with glitter markers and then added a layer of Diamond Glaze to the piece to resemble glass.

A layer of matching DP and the original outer verse, becomes the inside sentiment. A row of candy corn stickers keeps the sweet theme.
