BOO! No metal?

I bought my first wood mounted dollar stamps from ACMoore last week! I've been avoiding those bins for ages, knowing I would loose all self-restraint once I looked.
Can you believe I only bought 3??! This fun spooky house with the moon drew me in. Isn't it fun? *grin*
The sketch is one from Jen Del Muro's SFYTT collection. I had jotted it down last week, but never got around to using it. When I grabbed this stamp I knew it would be perfect for that LO because it showcased the image front and center.
I wanted to use something other than black so I grabbed some SU Navy and used my Impress inks to match. And of course orange and bright yellow/gold coordinated well with the blue.
I colored the moon in using prismacolor pencils and gamsol, and added Starry Night Stickles to the word "BOO."
The small sentiment is Papertrey as is the dotted border around the circle. Both are embossed with white EP. The ribbon is from MM. And no metal was used in the making of this card!

Love your Halloween card! The layout is great and the image is wonderful. Good job in restraining yourself. I have the same problem. I see a $1 and all self control goes out the window!

That moon looks awesome. Love the blue instead of the traditional black halloween card.

Being a crafter on a tight budget, i like to hit up the $1 stamps often. Thank goodness for bargains! This is a great card, and i also like the non-traditional blue for Halloween. Have a great day, Dana! :)

I love orange and blue together (that is the colors of my college football team-Auburn University in Auburn, Al). Great card. I love AC Moore, wish we had them here in In. I go to the one in Ga. everytime I visit my family. Traci
