Halloween Cards in pink, black & white...

I am straying from orange, black, green and purple this year I guess.  Each time I have sat down to create something for Halloween, I have ended up using non-traditional colors, so I am rolling with it... LOL 

This first card was created using the new Party Girl stamp set.  She is SO sassy!  I "dressed" her in signature MFT colors and added some glitzy glitter to her gloves and "bloomers".  Her boots were colored with a black Spica glitter pen.
Stamps: Party Girl
Ink: Memento black
Paper: SU patterned paper, white, black, pink
Accessories: SU brads, brads, Janome sew mini, nesties, SU ribbon, glitter, quickie glue pen, Prismacolor pencils, Copic markers (skin tones E00, E02), black Spica glitter pen, Sakura clear glaze pen, red line dimensionals
****************************************************
This card was inspired by Barbara, who created an elaborate coffin box using this stamp set.  I decided to created a simple card with the focus on the black coffin.  I used my paper trimmer to trim the coffin and eyeballed where the cuts would be.  Once I had one side cut, I took the part I trimmed off and used it as a guide to cut the other side so my coffin would be symmetrical.  The coffin is paper pierced all the way around.  I stamped the sentiment, framed it with a scalloped oval Nestabilities piece and then added some crystals.  I finished it off with some Prima flowers.  I decided to keep it clean and simple, because I wanted the attention on the coffin and cute sentiment.
Ink: Memento black
Paper: white, black, pink
Accessories: Prima flowers, SU brads, silver brads, Swarovski crystals, red line dimensionals
