Spooky Halloween Birthday

Firstly I'd like to say a big welcome to Julie who has just become a follower. Do check out her blog for some fab work and a gorgeous recipe for Apple Puff Pancake which sounds just heavenly.

It's my nephew Sam's 15th birthday today (where does the time go!!!) and I decided this year I would actually make him a spooky card for probably the first and last time. He's football mad so you can guess what I normally do.
Here's his card


The background paper is made from a piece of patterned paper that I altered with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink and then stamped on the brick pattern from my grunge backgrounds set by I Brake For Stamps from the Craft Fairy.
All of the images I used came from the Dezinaworld Halloween Collage Sheets and were cut out and collaged to the background with double sided tape and foam tape.
Many thanks to Cheryl on the Dezinaworld DT for the inspiration to get me started on this one as I'm more used to stamping than using lots of images but don't own any spooky stamps.
