Crafty Secrets Linky Party

I MADE IT! I MADE IT! Sorry... didn't mean to scream but I've been trying to get a project into Crafty Secrets Monthly Linky Parties since I found out about them early summer and I just had not been able to work with the theme or work it into my ever so busy schedule. :p lol It interrupted my naps! lol I did manage to get a Christmas image prepared for one of their past challenges but just as I was getting it ready, I discovered I'd missed the deadline. I was ready this time! I visited their FB page and found out it would be a Halloween theme. I then stalked them on Pinterest and found one of their fantastic images to use... and now... tada!
I had to go with my trusty twisted easel card:
Here's a view from the front:
Here's a view from the top so you can have a better look at the stopper:
And finally, here's a closer look at all the fun doodads and image:
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges. Before linking up, I reviewed the rules carefully and strongly believe I am in compliance:

  5. We are so glad to see you at our Crafty Secrets Linky Party. It sounds like you were with us in spirit a couple of times before this. This is a gorgeous creation. There is a column on the right side of Heartwarmong blog with a whole bunch of free printables and remember the only requirement to enter our Linky Parties is just to use Crafty Secret produts somewhere on your project. ONly the design has a theme schedule. Anyway back to your card. All the years I have been stamping I have never made an easel card. I am so inspired by yours that I will make one for the next challenge. Thanks for the inspiration.
