Hi Friends, I'm playing in this week's Retro Sketches 137 so I can try a trendy Halloween card, two actually! I don't own the die with the happy word inside so I cut my SSS happy word die and placed it over a circle cut. I cut the 2 rectangles with classic SB dies.

I had picked up some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in some Halloween colors a while back and made a fun shaker card. The design paper is American Crafts, the sentiment is MFT, the dark gray CS is SSS and the purple is SU!
