Hi Susan here...
Can you believe its Thursday again...and time for another challenge over at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog. The theme this time is 'Use any Halloween Sentiment' how easy is that!! Come and join in the fun with us on this challenge, for full details of the challenge call across to Aud Sentiments. This time around we are lucky enough to have The Cutting Cafe as our sponsor. They have such a variety of products over there all of which are so much fun to work with! We were lucky enough to use some of the images for our cards! They are giving the winner of this challenge 3 sets of their choice!

 For my card, which is quite simple and 'clean' looking, I used a two tone grey backing card from The Paper Mill Shop and inked the edges with black then I used a spiders web design from Tiddlyinks and embossed it with black sparkle embossing powder. Here and there I attached some black and clear gems, to add extra sparkle!!

This is one of the few images I used from The Cutting Cafe, I have used crackle glaze over the body and allowed it to dray and do its 'thing'. I was really pleased with the effect!! The little moving eyes are from my stash.

The spider was also an image from the same set, I cut it out and added a black pompom for its body....eeeek, nobody likes it here, we all hate spiders!!! I have hung it on a piece of acetate so that it bobs about over the web, eeek!

This great sentiment was my final image to use I embellished it with gems and cut it out with a nestability. Then I slightly inked the edges with black ink.

I made a simple little gift bag full of chocolate sweets. The witches hat was made by copying an image twice and flipping one over then sticking them together with the edge of the treat bag inside.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
