A BOO BANNER...using fancy frames and blackletter

hello to all
and
welcome to flowerdiscos' scrap hut.
so glad you made it here.

i am here to share with you a halloween banner i just finished. 

Boo
8.5 inches high
ETA THE FIRST PHOTO
still cannot get a good pic :(
using fancy frames i cut image#21 on the overlay at 8.5 inches high on black cardstock and the blackout feature on the beautiful green linen cardstock.
i know the pics do not do justice to the awesome banner but the days have been cloudy around here. as soon as it gets sunny again, i will replace them.

the font is from the blackletter cart and they are cut at 3.75 inches tall. i also used the shadow feature for the black layer.
using some of my faux rhinestones, i added some more well deserved bling. i also added some dritz silver eyelets to reinforce the hanging openings i made with the crop a dile. as a final touch i added some orange tulle i had in my stash. the glitter cardstock is an amazing orange color.

so very easy to make despite it took me a while to figure out  what i was going to add to it. and if you asked me i tell you it looks absolutely adorable.

just another idea for your halloween decorations and.... for those who do not have time to make them, this one is for sale at my etsy shop :P

you take care now. i will be back as soon as i can....:D

DAILY LIFE:
we have been in mourning for the loss of my brother in law. we buried him the first day of autumn after 2 weeks plus in intensive care. he was a healthy person and while at an outing with his family experienced excruciating pain due to a kidney stone and for whatever reason never recoup. 
may he rest in peace.

    Stunning banner. Wow! I also like green added in to the Halloween colors.

    Can you remind me which cutting system you use. I have not yet tried such intricate cuts. But have recently acquired some files to try.

    So sorry to hear about your loss of your brother. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
