It’s almost Halloween…

And tonight I thought I would finally bite the bullet and enter one of the “13 Days of Halloween” Challenges over at Simply Challenged Challenges. They were ever so slightly short of entrants for a prize to be given out, so thought I would take myself out of my comfort zone and try a Halloween card. I am in the Simply Betty group on Facebook, and they are a great bunch of girls, I even met two of them today and had a great time.  The group also does swaps every now and again, and the gorgeous papers I have used came from my lovely swap partner Emily.
The theme I chose was “candy corn”, so my card could only have yellow, orange, white and black as colours.  I used a Simply Betty digi Skeleton Peter, and coloured him with Promarkers. I then pop him onto a nestie cut shape, that I embossed with a Skull and brocade.  I added lots of diecuts(mostly from the lovely Anda), and tried my best to stick to the colour scheme. I hope you like him 😀

 
Here is a close up(in better lighting) of the embossed die cut.
 
 
 
Ingredients
Nightlight papers by My Minds Eye
