Spooky $1 Inkadinkado Halloween Images

I love all the thrills and chills of Halloween, so these fabulous Inkadinkado images that I found at Michael's for only $1 a pack were perfect for me!  The price made them even more of a thrill!  I teamed these images up with some Scenic Route paper, stickers and brads that I found at Tuesday Morning, and then I found this wonderful sparkly bat border in the Target $1 Spot.  I had to add this cool spider web sticker to the tree from my stash.  To top it off, the sparkly fibers were from a hair tie that I took apart to use on cards.   
The images were stamped on white cardstock with Memento Black Tuxedo ink.  Next, I sponged on some Walnut Stain Distress ink all over the paper to make it match the design papers better (The colors do really match in real life!).  The deckle scissors added more of an eerie feeling to all of the edges on the design paper and cardstock.  This card went together real easy after I stamped the images.  They were from three different Inkadinkado sets.  No cutting, popping up or other special effects were used to make these images pop.  They could even stand alone for an even easier card.
The inside uses another Inkadinkado image.  Doesn't this just scream Halloween to you?  I also used the Distress ink on the paper and hand cut and matted it on the black cardstock.  The border and word stickers were from the kit that I got at Tuesday Morning (that I now see needs to be reinforced with some Scotch quick grab glue).  My daughter tells me that I'm strange in sending Halloween cards to people (especially my grandkids).  How about you?  Do you make and send any Halloween cards?
