Hi Girls! I hope you are having a GREAT week so far! My dear friend Julie whom some of you may recognize from Julie's Open Window has launched a BRAND NEW challenge site called The Play Date Cafe! Julie & her DT will be offering various types of weekly challenges. Please be sure to visit either Julie at the Open Window or The Play Date Cafe for COMPLETE details! A day late & a $ short as the saying goes! I realize I missed the deadline for this week's Play Date Cafe color challenge as my job got in the way of my craftiness! :( I hate when that happens! Regardless of my tardiness, I made my last Halloween card for this season, using the Play Date Cafe colors for color inspiration. I combined several different challenges as well. In no particular order they are as follows: Just Us Girls 3-D flower challenge, JUGS4, :), For sketch inspiration, CPS139 & The Pink Elephant's challenge #38, TPE38, which challenges the crafter to use black, distressing & hardware. If you would like to gaze at some jaw-dropping creations, please be sure to visit each & every site that I have mentioned :) Are you ready for Halloween yet? Be Sweet!
Here is my Happy Halloween Witches card:
I crumpled up the lil' flowers in my hand to give them a vintagey look! Using a sponge dauber inked up with Tim Holtz Antique ink, I smudged the scalloped punch edges for a nice soft distressed look.
The Witch image is coated with Martha Stewart glitter which is really difficult to for me to capture with camera. She really twinkles & shimmers :)
