A Frightfully Spooky Halloween....

Hi Susan here....

I do hope you have all had a great week, over at The Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog there is a new challenge started and the theme is .... yes you've guessed it....HALLOWEEN, well it has to be at this time of the year doesn't it. Our Sponsor for Challenge 21 is Simon Says Stamp, one lucky person will get a $15 gift certificate to spend as he/she wishes! That can't be bad can it!!! For full details of the challenge and to feast your eyes on some great inspiration from the design team call across to The Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog and join in the fun with us all.

For my card I used my own sketch, and used the typical colours of black, green, purple and orange. My backing papers are a mix from my bits and pieces drawer, the main piece is from Bearlymine. All the edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles. My trim up the side I made using oddments of ribbon and handmade Fimo beads, all threaded onto a leather string.
 
My great image is available from The Stamping Bazaar Store, and his name is Marvin Candy Apple, he was designed by the very talented Marina Neira, and at the moment there is a special offer price for these Marvin images. I used Pro-Markers to colour him in and inked the background with a grey ink and then mat and layered onto a black card, all edges have been distressed and glittered.

My flower is from Petaloo I joined three layers together with a large brad and glittered all the edges of the petals with stickles.

My sentiment was made on the computer, the edges have been inked and glittered.

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
