Today is the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge. Kristen loves Halloween so we are celebrating early with a Halloween challenge. I have seen some great Halloween stamps out there this year. This is one I got as a freebie from Create 4 Fun. Isn't this adorable!!!! I had a blast coloring her. I bought this paper Saturday on my LSS outing with friends and I love how it looks with this stamp.
The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:
Crafts & Me - Petals & Pearls - I love all the recollection pearl sets because of all the great colors they come in. I bought the Orange thinking of Halloween cards. I didn't have orange flowers so I thought it would look nice if I made them with the DP I used on the card. I think they look cute.
Stampavie & More - Swirls - My image has swirly vines so I thought that putting one of my spellbinders swirls on the card would be a nice addition.
Digi Doodle's Shop Best - Distressing - I haven't distressed anything in a while so when I was trying to figure out how to add some dimension I thought distressing the purple CS would look good.
Hanna & Friends - Pearls & Swirls - I love that Pearls and Swirls can work on so many cards. I tend to put swirls on Fancy girly cards but really like how they work on this card.
Moving along with the Times - 2 PP's, 3 flowers, 1 Ribbon - I love the 2 DP's I used on this card. I made my own flowers because I couldn't find orange and didn't want to color white ones. I knew I had to add my orange polka ribbon because I love it!
Pixie Dust - Stitching. I could add stitching to every card. It's easy and I think it adds alot without being over done.
Paper Cutz - Metal - I have 2 metal brads on this card. The 1st is the spider hanging from the hat and the 2nd is the Halloween which I was thrilled fit perfectly on the corner.
Our Daily Bread - Texture It - I have alot of texture on this card. The Purple circle is embossed, the flowers, and the Glitter.
Cowgirl Sunday - Embellish with Flowers - I made my own flowers to match the card.
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Metal - I have 2 metal items on this card. The spider hanging from the hat and the Halloween brad.
The Sweet Stop - Sketch - I wanted a sketch that would work well with my papers and this one was perfect.
Cupcake Craft - Lets Get Digital - I love digi stamps. They are easy to use, and I don't have to wait when I buy them. I love instant gratification!!
Stamps R Us - Stitches - I love faux stitching. When I think a card needs something one of the first things I think of is putting stitching on it.
Crafty Cardmakers - Glitter & Sparkle - I love Glitter - I put glitter on the hat band, around the edges of my goo punch, on the swirl and I sprayed the flowers with glitter spray. I'm not sure you can see all of this in my picture but IRL it looks sparkly.
Thank you for visiting and looking at my card. I hope you like it. A huge thanks to everyone who leaves comments. I love reading them.
