Non-Traditional Halloween Colors

This past weekend was long.
My very favorite cousin got married on Sunday in the Dallas area, 6 hours away from where I live.
My mom and his mom are sisters so naturally we had to be there on Saturday to help my aunt with the rehearsal dinner, a rehearsal dinner that had 150 people in attendance. Various members of my family were helping to serve the food in the line and at one point one of the bride's cousins said 'do you work at Macaroni Grill (who catered)?' My mom just laughed and said 'nope, just the groom's aunt.' Lol, yeah, long weekend. Now, regardless of how tired I am, the wedding and all the included festivities were really beautiful and the bride is a beautiful person inside and out who is without a doubt the best thing to have ever happened to my cousin. She is the flowery, artsy, fun personality to his mathematical, technical mind. :)
I'll probably post a congratulations card for them soon, I figure I have a little bit of time since they just left for their honeymoon today!

Anyway, I have one last Halloween card to share.
Instead of the typical orange and green and black, I went with pink and green a black! I thought it was a bit more fun.

For this I used:
The image is from The Paper Shelter.
She is colored with Copics.
All the papers except the glittery spiderwebs are DCWV, and the spiderwebs are Cloud 9 Designs.
The sentiment is K Andrew Designs inked with Memento Tuxedo Black.
The gems are Recollections.
