Birthday Card Using Lacy Sunshine Isabella Button Boo's Secret Window

Hello crafting friends!  I hope it is cooling off with Fall weather wherever you are.  Or; at least changing seasons.  LOL!  I love season changes; but we really don't have those too much in Southern CA.  It is still in the 90's here.  Be well and be happy!

I saw this adorable Lacy Sunshine digi a few days ago; so I had to buy it for only $2.00 and create a card with it for their current challenge.  The Digi is Lacy Sunshine Isabella Button Boo's Secret Window and Lacy Sunshine Challenge - Include a window is on now.   I wanted to use a new set of CTMH Scaredy Cat Paper; which has Halloween images on it.  I always like to see what else I can use my paper; other than it's original intention.  I rarely make anything with Halloween paper; but I loved this paper; so had to create something with it.  I really love the thistle and black stripe paper and the reverse side is pretty too.  I am a purple lover; what can I say?
