Stamps R Up Blog Challenge Halloween

My Blogging group from SCS has a Challenge Blog going- I participate when I can- but TODAY is special- Firecracker Designs by Pamela (I am on Pamela’s DT) is sponsoring the challenge HALLOWEEN this week on the STAMPS R US Challenge Blog! Join us in the next two weeks and you will have a chance to win free digi’s from FCD.
Here is a close-up of the Creative Inspirations I used to highlight the Copic coloring on the card:
For my card, the inspiration came entirely from Jaydekay from SCS from this card HERE .  I tried to change up a few things, and ended up CASE’in her card to a tee- except the leaves and the images……. I wanted to show you how the back was made for my card:
 StampsRUshalloweenbackofcardmakingtemplate StampsRushalloweenbacktemplate
The Nestability was cut out three full times for the card, but for the back I made a template and only needed a portion of the nestability for the sides.  After I made the template, I cut the back out of white cardstock.  I then scored the white portion of the card down 3/4” and used adhesive to put the front and back together as seen below.
The cardstock has a sparkle in it- Orange and the Green , well– it is wonderful!!! It is called Mini Sparkle and I got it in a package with 7 different colors.
