Good morning 🙂 It’s a beautiful fall Sunday here, and Thanksgiving weekend in Canada as well. After a few threats of snow, the weather has (typically) settled down for a bit, to let us enjoy the beauty of autumn. With it being Sunday, it’s my turn to post some inspiration for the current challenge in the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group. Our theme for the month of October is Halloween/Halloween colors….which coincides nicely with the blog challenge theme of Halloween. October is a very special month for Ching-Chou, as it is her 4th anniversary for the blog, as well as the Facebook group. As part of the celebration, she is offering extra prizes in both challenges, as well as a gorgeous free image to anyone that enters!!!
I’m still not feeling too Halloween-y, so I opted with the colors instead of the season. I used one of the newer images available at the store, called Poppy In Blue.
I colored this beauty with my Copics, then began layering it up with assorted papers in the Halloween color scheme. The black background is embossed with an embossing folder from my stash. I used some prints from a Halloween paper pad to die cut some banners, and cut the other elements of the card. Once I had everything glued down, I added some purple and an orange adhesive gem as embellishments.
I would like to enter the following challenges with this card:
Lemon Shortbread Challenge – #77 ATG
