My card that I would like to share with you today was made with only scraps!  I love using my scraps up!
I ran the top 2/3 portion of my craft cardstock through my Big Shot using Tim Holtz brick embossing folder.  Then pieced the pattern paper and border together with a zig zag stitch.

After I stamped my images from Treat For My Sweet!  I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the skeleton.

I'll be a back tomorrow with a new project for the last day of Halloween Hustle!

The Brick Wall is a fun embossing the look. Glossing up your skeleton helps him stand out and he looks great. I like the border punching...nice addition. Super job on your card.
