*** Three Halloween Cards inspired by Pier1 ***

Hello again! Hope you're having an awesome weekend!  
SCS's Inspirational Challenge today is featuring the Pier1 site.  Don't know about you, but I happen LOVE Pier1 and so  I wanted to play along.  Below are three Halloween Cards that I created. 

The first was inspired by this FABULOUS *Bat Veil* from Pier1 Imports...

I love that first card, all green and black and so many strips of different patterns! It's definitely from the creepy witch's cauldron eerie glow side of Halloween!
