Trick or Treat card using the NEW Happy Hauntings cricut cartridge

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card that I made using the NEW Happy Hauntings cartridge. This cartridge has some really great images including several frames with silhouettes. I think this is my favorite of the Halloween cartridges thus far!



I cut this at 5 1/2". I sugared the witch using glitter and my Xyron.



The stamp is from Close To My Heart.



I used Jillibean Soup paper and Papertrey Ink ribbon.



Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!

This is a great card, with the silhouette figure it reminds of the haunted house at disney and has a real spooky look to it.
