mummy for my Mommy and FabFri03...

My card today is one I created for the very awesome Fab Friday Challenge.

I mentioned a bit ago that I had the chance to do some "cardyo" with a good friend a few weekends ago.  While we were stamping I was talking about how many Halloween stamp sets I have and was giggling about the fact that I have never made a Halloween card or project and that I still have the huge desire to buy more of these fun and adorable sets.  Since then I decided that I had better put some of them to use.  My mother's birthday is at the end of the month; not quite Halloween, but close.  I thought that I could use the cute little mummy from the Googly Ghouls to make a card for my Mommy.

Here is the sketch for FabFri03:
