Happy Birthday - Halloween Style

Happy Monday everyone! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was absolutely incredible - I got to go with my gym buddy, Melissa, to Banff as she ran in the Melissa's 10K Run!!! There is just something so majestic, breath-taking  and calming about the Rocky Mountains...she ran a phenomenal race and I'm so very, very proud of her!! Someday, I'm *hoping* to run along side her!

 Alright - onto this week's business! Megan has issued a very pretty color combination for y'all this week :) When I first saw it, I was going to do a Halloween card. However, I do not "do" Halloween much around here so I decided to try and make a different kind of still screams "Halloween" to me but I really like how it turned out and I'm *SURE* that there are people out there who have a birthday on Halloween, RIGHT!?!? *giggle*

Stamps: Perfectly Penned; Paper: Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Whisper White, Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Accessories: flowers, black taffeta ribbon, pearls, vintage wallpaper embossing folder, paper piercer, felt pen, martha leaf punch, glue dots, brads
