Top Tip Tuesday DTs have been busy making just for your inspiration!

Here's another peek at my DT card
Plain white card stock, scored for the wood panels and then 4 additional rectangles to make the door stand out a bit more. 
 Weathered the door for more rustic look.  Added a brad for the door knob.
Braided 3 strands of ribbon (orange, red, and black and white checkered) to make the wreath. 
 Folded green ribbon to make leaves. 
 Hand drew the bats and tied a bow.  
Smacked a Boo sign on the door and you can't ring Frankenstein's door without seeing Frankenstein, so I added his hand coming around the door to greet the anxious trick or treaters.

Thanks for stopping in and I can't wait to see what you come up with for the 

Happy Haunting...I mean stamping...
