Non traditional Halloween cards!

Sometimes non-traditional images work best. Last year I concentrated on "romantic" Halloween themed cards, this year I was into fanciful frames.
The first card was actually the inspiration for all the other. The fanciful frame with silhouette and banner is actually a piece of paper from Martha Stewart/E.K Success from last years. All I did was add the rub-on text from Heidi Grace and mounting them on alternate layers of black and ivory paper.

The second card uses a Spellbinder cut frame and some black flower stickers from Recollections with an infill paper from Martha Stewart/E.K. Success and a rub-on text from Heidi Grace. The card was made from orange paper edged and aged with black ink.

The Third card uses a black glittered frame cut using the Cricut Halloween cartridge. The ribbon was create using a punch from Martha Stewart/E.K. Success also cut from black glittered paper. Once again the black flower stickers are from Recollections and a rub-on text from Heidi Grace. The card was made from red paper edged and aged with black ink.

The fourth card was made using a Spellbinder scalloped oval pattern die-cut frame infilled with alternating black and white patterned paper, black and white insets. The 3D flower stickers are from Anna Griffin and colored lightly with pencils. The final touches are a computer generated text and an Offray black bow.
