CAS Paper Players

A simple and clean card for Halloween

I really wanted to participate in the speed challenge over at the As You see it Blog, not only because it's fun, but also so I can learn to make cards faster-it takes me way too long... So after careful planing, I had an idea and I started. It took 7.5 min. (And only because i glued the rhinestone more on my fingers than on the card. ) So it's do-able!
The colors got inspired by the Colour Throwdown and house of cards. The moon is more orange in real life than on the picture. And not to forget the theme-it's spooky time over at the Paper Players!

Paper: Recollections(white
