Papercraft Star Challenge #17

We have a Halloween photo inspriation to work from this week at Papercraft Star.  I love making shaped or dimensional cards and this week I decided to try my hand at making a frame card.  The cute little wizard image is from Imag-e-nation.  He's colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and he's got some purple Perfect Pearls and Glossy Accents to add some sparkle and shine to him and his jack-o-lantern.  The sign is a freebie design I found at my friend Lily's website Lily's Art Creations.  For my Chinese lanterns I simply cut out some circles with punches and then used an embossing tool to create the ridges.  I inked them and "strung" them on some twine from an office tag.  I got the bat and spider from Michaels and tried my hand at drawing the spiders web in the bottom corner.  I thought it turned out fun and cute and it was something different for me.
Okay, so here's the low down on this week's challenge.

Our sponsor this week is POOPOOPAPER!
