Halloween Kid

Today marks the beginning of a 5 day weekend for me - yay!  Having said that, I have a whole heap of chores to do and I've just found out the insurer is planning on digging up our driveway and path tomorrow as a result of the earthquake damage from Sep 10 and Feb 11, so it's going to be headache material around here, methinks!

Anyway, while it's quiet I managed to make a card for the sketch challenge at Fab Friday and the theme challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

We don't celebrate Halloween, but this cute kid just needs to be stamped and colored.


I used the color coach for colors that worked with Pumpkin Pie and it gave me Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso.  I substituted Basic Black for the Espresso and I quite like the contrast.  

I colored my girl with markers and blender pen then cut out and mounted onto a Basic Black layer.  Once I had the banners and stamped image on the card, I decided to add some little rolled roses and leaves as embellishments.



Thanks for looking.
