It's day 3 of TE sneaks and we're revving up for Halloween!  My card features Graphic Greetings Halloween, a fabulous single stamp designed and illustrated by Taylor for the *te* line of stamps.

I grabbed the Tricks & Treats Project Pantry Kit used all sorts of patterned papers from the kit.  I stamped the image in Brilliance Graphite Black ink directly on some patterned paper and trimmed it to fit the image.  I layered it over the Spooky Fence Border Die and then added the big spider from the new Spiders & Spider Web Dies.  Since I was working with the googlie eyes from a previous card, I decided to add them on the side, like a little monster is peeking out from under the paper.  The layout is Retro Sketches RS #27.

Don't forget to hop on over to Taylor's Blog to see how you can win 2 stamp sets of your choice!
