Mo's First Challenge

I am in a hurry to get this post out on time - seem to be leaving things to the last minute - or maybe I just want to take part in too many challenges!!!! Anyone else like this? I really did want to play along in Mo's First Challenge - I love her images and she even gives away freebies too. This witch was one of them but I can't find it to give you a link sorry whoops nearly forgot there must be purple on the card too! I have used the sketch at Cat's Corner, you should also have a cat in the picture somewhere.

I coloured the image with my trusty C'Aran D'Ache watercolour pencils (without water!), the moon and buckle have been coloured with a yellow stardust Sakura pen. The background papers and sentiments are from Summer Driggs - Fangs for the Memories and Happy Halloween kits. I used MyCraft Studio to manipulate them on one sheet of paper. The sentiments were cut out and attached. The ribbon is purple satin from Anitas sticky ribbons - my bit of fabric.

I also used some confetti for the bats and the pumpkins. The other bat is from a Scrapbookingmad kit. The oval and curly bit! are from MyCraft Studio Lavender and Paperlace CD Rom.

So there you have it. I am also entering this card in the following challenges:-

Daring Cardmakers - Autumn and Purple,

Frosted Design - Fabric,

Allsorts Challenge - Halloween and

Simon Says Challenge - Halloween.

As usual I would love to hear what you think. Have a great day everyone.

Ali, what a lovely card. I only wish we celebrated halloween more in this country and for longer periods as a lot of the images are FAB and get such a short useage. The Lavendar and Lace My Craft Studio CD is still on my wish list.

Thanks for entering my blog candy. Your name will go in the hat and fingers crossed.

best wishes, Kym xxx
