BOO BELLA! A Halloween Bingo Card Banner!

We got Halloween going on in the BOO BELLA! group at Bella Creations.  Why don't you come and join in!!

My goal here was to create a fairly simple banner.  Really this one is all about the assembly of different elements, no complicated techniques and I used what was in my stash!  My base and inspiration is the Jenni Bowlin Halloween Edition Bingo cards, all edges inked with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.

The top border on each is a strip of green, black and orange ribbon as I wanted to use those three colours overall.  The bottom border is a candy punch from MS, a strip of vintage orange velvet ribbon and some fun pom pom trim.  Black satin ribbon to string them all together, black tulle for some fluff and a bit of orange organza added,  MS skeletons!  Platinum Stickles around the edges.

The running Jack O Lantern scrap is from Paper Valise (check them out for wonderful bits!) I need to highlight his face so that he isn't lost.  I punched out and inked a moon to set him on.  A vintage owl button and the Jack O Lantern button from my stash.  The center medallions are all from MS.   The "rosettes" are old yellowed cupcake papers which I misted in a different colour for each.  Fringed with my pinking shears. Edged with more glittery Stickles!  The gold centers are chocolate foils (cupcake papers and chocolate foils are a newest obsession!).

A vintage owl button and a candy corn button from my stash.  The "candy" is from MS.

The bat and metal Haunted House brad are Making Memories.  Eeek is K&Co.  Hope you enjoyed looking and are inspired to create a little Halloween for yourself!
