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 :D

Here is a close up(in better lighting) of the embossed die cut.
Nightlight papers by My Minds Eye
Oval Nesties
Cuttlebug Embossing folder
Sizzix, Cheery Lyn and Spellbinders Halloween Dies
Gems and bakers twine from stash.
