Dare U 2 Digistamp, Our Creative Corner, Pile It On and Pollycraft Monday Challenges.

Not sure if I will finish this post tonight so here goes.

I followed the great sketch at Dare U 2 Digistamp which is shown below. I had to photo my card twice because I forgot to put on the embellishments on the left side!!!! Doh!!!

I am loving everything Halloween at the moment, there is so much out there especially on the American sites. So I have used this fantastic image from Dustin Pike, called Pumpkin Bear. I have used watercolour pencils to colour him in.

The papers I have used are from Summer Driggs called Happy Halloween Kit. I have also matted these onto a piece of black card which has been glittered using Crafters Companion Gold Sparkle - which unfortunately doesn't show up very well in this photo. The embellishments are made using a McGill Craftivity Punch called Frightful Fun - sorry haven't a clue where I got it from. I punched into some coloured craft foam.

The other challenges I have entered this card in are:-

Pollycraft Monday Challenge where they would like you to use Black, White and one other colour,

Pile It On which has a similar challenge Black, White and one other colour and

Our Creative Corner where they would like Fall/Autumn cards.

My other colour is Orange and Halloween is in the Autumn. I think just about covers things and I did it before bedtime!!!.

As always I would be grateful for your comments, they are very valuable to me.
