Dreamweaver Extra Week of Posts: Day 30 of 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings! I have a super quick card to share today, using a Dilly Beans skull and Dreamweaver Stencils' Nesting Frames. All month long, the Dream Team has been serving up all sorts of holiday goodness. Not just Halloween, but Thanksgiving and Christmas too. I of course, had to stick with Halloween.

I colored her up with colored pencils, and used two of the Nesting Frames dies from Dreamweaver Stencils. Have you been keeping track with who has won this month over at Dreamweaver? Did you win? What stencil did you choose? Are you hooked???

How great is my base card? Scored a pack of them (with different designs) at Michaels. $2.99 for 40! I may need to get anther pack. My fab-u-lous velvet ribbon is from May Arts. That's about it for me today! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Plus, the whole Dream Team is posting today as well! See their links below and drop by for a visit. Thanks for stopping by. Have an spooktacular day!

Great framing for your image against the cool chevron DP. Love the green shading on the skull, too. Gonna have to try that color. I was a lucky winner. Haven't decided which stencil, though. Been loving your work and that of the rest of the team. xxD

On this hop I have been learning many ways to use those frames. Can't wait to try.
Not sure why a skull can look so cute.
