There is alot going on with this card. I followed the sketch for Challenge #5 on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog The sketch is for a square card - originally, I was planning on using black for my card base, however, I couldn't find my black cardstock - it might have gotten misplaced among my reorganizing - in the meantime, I used one of my CB folders to emboss the purple and then ended up using it as my base. I guess I must have gotten distracted because I had plenty of the purple at hand to use - oh well - it came together rather easily once I decided how I wanted to use the different colors and shapes. The challenge also asked that we use two images, so I had already colored the pumpkin some time ago and the Magnolia was already cut out and I just had to color her. The color choice came from Day 220 on the 365 Card Blog The colors are PERFECT for Halloween cards - which I typically DO NOT make - however, I couldn't resist this sweet little Magnolia. Since my stamps are all boxed up for the moment - I didn't know WHAT sentiment I was going to use. I knew I had a 'trick or treat' sentiment - but where?? So, I found these cute little stickers - I do NOT usually use stickers on my cards - but this one worked quite well and then I added the bats for that little extra! No flowers on this card - I tried - however, they just didn't work with the pumpkin! I also used a bit of sheer orange ribbon around the die from Tim Holtz. This die is called Styled Labels and I am finding it quite versatile.There are two dies on the same block - but I have yet to use the other one - and have started out to use that one on the last couple of cards I have made. :)
I hope you enjoy my card - and your comments are so appreciated.
Thanks for stopping by the spa where I hope you have found inspiration.
