Simon Says Challenge

Don't forget to enter my BasicGrey Blog Candy ! All you have to do is CLICK HERE !

What a fabulous response we had to both challenges last week, it was so lovely to have so many of you playing along with us.

This week we are getting in the halloween mood and want to see your scary creations ! The rest of the DT have done an amazing job and their cards and gift boxes are just fantastic, hop over and take a look. Heidi is very generously giving away a $25 shopping spree to the winner of this challenge and Simon Says Stamp has the most amazing halloween goodies in store right now.

If you click on the photo you will see a larger picture. I have no idea what I have done to it this time ! hehehe !

You may remember I told you a couple of weeks ago that Heidi very generously sent the DT a kit for halloween and I've used quite a few of those goodies on my card.

I took my inspiration for the layout of this card from a fantastic sketch on Sunday Sketch and Stamp and so I am going to enter that challenge with this card too.

The DP's are BasicGrey "Eerie". One was called "Mummy" and the other I am sure was called "Couldron" (I think I have stuck the name to the card !!!).

The image is Tilda from last year's halloween stamp set. She has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The spiders webs are also a stamp from a Magnolia fall kit and they have been stamped in Brilliance Starlight Black so it has a silver sheen to it.

The edges have been inked in spiced marmalade distress ink.

The bats, ghosts and orange spiders web ribbon can be bought here

The flowers and dew drops were all in my kit from Heidi as was the sentiment which is an Inkadinkado stamp which I have stamped and heat embossed with twinkling black embossing powder. I sprayed the flowers with some silver glimmer mist.

I had such fun making this card with all those bright, bold colours. Its such a shame that we don't celebrate halloween the way they do in other Countries, its such a wonderful time of year and warms you up ready for Christmas I think - do you think so too ?

We look forward to seeing all your spooktactular creations !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave, they mean so much to me.

See you back here tomorrow for Colour Create !
