Spooky!

I hope you're all ready for Halloween because it's almost here.  Just a few more days and the ghosts and goblins will be roaming my neighborhood in search of some yummy candy.  I love checking out the costumes of all the little kiddos...they're so cute!  I have another Halloween card to share with you today.  I used an image by Meljen's Designs called Cat O Lantern and he's not spooky at all.  I think this is a perfect image to use on cards for the younger ones.


I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and used my Nestabilities for the image and layers.  My paper is by Echo Park.  I added a ribbon and button and just a little touch of Stickles.  After all, what's a Halloween card without some sparkle?



Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  Be sure you check out Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog.  You have one more day to enter the current challenge and then we'll be announcing a new challenge tomorrow.  And Melissa will also have a new release tomorrow -- yeah!
