A Spoon Full of Sugar, Mygrafico, Cupcake, Digital Tuesday and Corrosive Challenges.

Hi everyone, what a wonderful day it has been - even better because I won some candy today from Beccy's Bits. I only found out when I got to work and even better was one of the bits of candy is a Fairy Doodles stamp set I have on my wishlist - thank you so much Beccy.
Now to the business of my latest card, not so soft and fluffy as my usual cards. The sketch for this one is from The Corrosive Challenge Blog and is shown below.

I felt this sketch was perfect for the challenge at Digital Tuesday where they have asked for a "Clean and simple Fall Card" with a digi image. The image I have used is one I bought from Scrapbookingmad (link on my sidebar), they have quite a few Halloween images out at the moment.

The papers I have used are from the Funky Seasons and It's Funky Too CDRoms from Funky Hand. The swirly paper has some half pearls stuck on to make it more interesting. Coincidently this happens to be the challenge at Cupcake Craft - Swirls and Pearls!

I have then punched out some Halloween shapes using the McGill Craftivity Frightfully Fun punch. They have been punched on a pale yellow glitter card.

I think this card can also qualify for the Mygrafico Challenge which asks for an Autumn card with one digi image, two patterned papers and three embellishments.

Fianlly I am also entering this card in the "Fall into Autumn" challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar.

Once again my blogging friends please leave a little comment for my delectation!!!

What a great card.I love the image you have used. It's easy for me to forget about my papers from past CDs as I'm always working on the next thing! Funky Seasons is one of my favs and you've inspired me to get it out and use it again!
