Happy Halloween!

I hope your bag is full of treats - and no tricks! - today! Isn't this card fun? I made it for AJ's Hope You Can Cling to Challenge; she asked us to make a card using a non-traditional shape - no squares or rectangles! I thought I would try my hand at a candy corn card. I had never made one before, but I'd seen a few, so I kind of worked from memory to come up with my own version. I started with a 3.5 by 5 inch yoyo yellow card base, added strips of orange and white, then cut the base into a loose triangle, with the fold at the top. I used a corner rounder to add the curves to the edges. I will definitely do this one again - it was fast and I think it turned out pretty cute!
Stamps: All Holidays (SU), bat from Victorine Originals
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Paper: yoyo yellow, only orange, whisper white
Accessories: corner rounder, divine twine
