Boo Halloween Card

This card measures 14cms x 14cms and is made using a hand cut and creased smooth black card blank.
The original design for this card was not my idea  I found it on Pinterest where it used card/paper die cuts, but as soon as I saw it I remembered that I had some laser cut, wooden wreath shapes that were almost exactly the same and I certainly had a wooden letter B that would go with them.  
I simply coloured them using an orange Sharpie pen and then applied some green, ultra fine glitter  to the leaves before gluing the shapes onto the card blank.
For a little more texture/interest I then added a scattering of tiny, silver stars and clusters of white dots using a white gel pen here and there.  Such a simple but effective Halloween card, but without all the usual pumpkins, ghosts and skeletons. I am so pleased with how it turned out and am now wondering if I can adapt the idea again to fit any Christmas words that have an "O" in them ....... holly, jolly, noel pehaps?
