Wondrous Wreath for Halloween!

Good morning Stampers! Today I am showing you a different way to use a Christmas stamp set. I love it when a stamp set is versatile so you actually get more bang for your buck. Who would have thought that just changing the colors on a Christmas themed set would turn it into a Halloween card? See what I mean:

I used Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Basic Black for my wreath colors and add a "Raven" with my Bird Punch:

I even added a flower in the raven's mouth! Do you like the embossing around the stamped images? What a nice framed look the Filigree Frame adds to a card.
