{Halloween Sweetie}

I have never been a fan of scary Halloween like ghouls, goblins, and skeletons, but I LOVE cute Halloween! This image by Pink Cat Studios is so darn cute and I had to have it. For this card I used DSP from SU. The image was colored with Pro-Markers, with a few SU markers also. The ribbon is from a roll I picked up at a flea market, I have never used it on a card and thought it would be perfect for this card! I sanded the black dsp with a sanding block, and sponged the edges of the layers with red, and black ink. The sentiment is from a House Mouse Halloween set.  Finally I accented the card with a flower I made using the SU Scallop circle punch with a Making Memories fabric brad in the center. I know this card doesn't have the classic orange, black, purple or green Halloween colors, but I think it is a fun, light hearted alternative to the darker images of Halloween. I am playing along with 2 challenges today:

The Paper Players Challenge - Create a card using one DSP, something punched, and a sentiment.

PaperPlay Challenges - Make a Halloween card.

      Play along with these challenges if you get a chance! Thank you for visiting my blog today, and thank you in advance if you leave a comment!
