For this little guy I created another shaker card, but made it look like a window.  The sequins are purple and black.  The spider web and spider are SSS dies.  The little pumpkins are stickers from Doodlebug.  It's hard to see in the picture but I gave him some googly eyes!  To make it look like he has wings and is flying I glued die cut bats to the back of the image.  I think it looks cool!
So that's it for the August release.  I hope you enjoyed seeing all the gorgeous creations from the design team and design team guests!  Have a great week!

I love the eerie tree and ghosts in this set!
