Happy Friday!  My husband's grandmother is on her way over so this needed to be a real quick card today.  I made this card in just 10 minutes, yep...honest I did.  It's taking me longer to post this then it did to create my card....LOL

I was looking for a stamp that I didn't need to color in and I found this image in an older SU stamp set that my mother-in-law found for me at a yard sale this past summer.  She found lots of stamps for me this year!

I simply stamped the haunted house image, layered onto my black card stock and then I started working on the rest of my card.

My background is embossed using my cuttlebug and cuttlebug spider web embossing folder.  My dp is some that I picked up this past Monday in Target's $1 spot.  It's hard to see in my photo, but the pattern paper is glittery paper.

For my ribbon treatment I decided to use a spiral clip and a small piece of orange ribbon.  Once my card was finished I decided to add a few punched out bats using my EK Success bat punch.  I'm loving that punch lately- it adds just the right touch of Halloween!

My sentiment is layered using my scalloped oval and wide oval punch and my ribbon is from Offray.

Thanks for checking in today and make it a great day!  I think I'll be busy catching up on some of my house work and maybe even some yard work because it looks like the weather here today is going to be great- we've had so much rain this past week, it's nice to see the sun out again.

I always tend to think I have to color my stamps but this card is just so beautiful without any color at all! It gives the card a totally different look. So pretty!
