Halloween at Lexi's Creations....

Hi Susan here

 Can you believe that October is nearly at its end....!!
Over at Lexi's Creations we are starting a new challenge today, and the theme is


Appropriate challenge for this time of the year. I love the reds, yellows, oranges, and black colours that are used on these creations.
Full details can be found on the Lexi's Creations Challenge Blog about this fabulous challenge and our great sponsor. 

Now onto my card....


My backing paper is from a 6x6 scrapbooking pad that I have had for ages, the colours in it always remind me of celebrations and this time of year. I decided on red and black for my main colours as I think they are so dramatic and I always think of these two colours when I think of vampires and bats.

The gorgeous little silver charm is from Ebay.
The sentiment ticket is originally from Fairy Dust Crafts, I blanked out the middle and put my own sentiment there, coloured the outer edge with Promarkers and then glued it to a die cut shape using black card and glittered the edge. The die is from Raindrop Echo.

I have used several dies on this card, including a gorgeous Tilda edging for the black strip at the back of the image. I put some stickles all along the edges.

This cute image has been designed by our own Lexi Lee and is available from Fairy Dust Crafts Store, it is called Vampire Bear.
I have used chalks to colour the image, I have added stickles to the moon to make it shine.
I used another die - a nestabillity die for the topper and then trimmed the shiny red card to back that.
All the card used is from Paper Mill Direct.

I hope you decide to come and join us in this fabulous challenge at Lexi's Creations.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my creation and for your many wonderful comments.
Love and hugs
