Vintage Halloween: Take Three

Hello! Today, as promised, I have a CAS style vintage Halloween card.  When creating a vintage style card with newer items, it is all about pattern and color.  I love a lot of the newer label type stamps with matching dies.  This pattern is a classic, so stamped in a muted orange, and then paired with some scrolls made from pages in an old book-you have a vintage looking design!
The label was made using Fancy Labels #4 by Stephanie Barnard for Sizzix.  The stamp set used is labels4cutting by The Stamps Of Life, which matches the dies.
I created the swirls using dies from the Sizzix Framelits with stamp set found HERE.  The background is cut using black card stock, and the inner swirl is cut from old text from a book.  I added some black rhinestones to the swirl, and rounded the upper right corner for effect.

Linking this up for Make It Monday!

Thanks for stopping by!
