*** Happy Halloween!

I know that Halloween is actually tomorrow but I have my post for the new Meljen's Designs' challenge ready for then and I wanted to share this Halloween card with you. Plus I didn't want to post 2 cards on the same day.  Anyway, here it is...
 
 
I decided to do a circle card and used one of Sherri Baldy's cute Besties as the focus on it. I coloured her up with my Copic Markers; notice the purple eye shadow and ponytail high-lights and glitter on her crinoline. I used an assortment of Spellbinder's dies to cut out the card base [the orange cardstock is a piece I've had forever in my leftover box!], mats, background designer papers, rick rack trim, sentiment, leaves and flowers.

 
 I actually did real stitching on this card and added lots of layers. I also used a bit of distress inking to the edges of the flowers and sentiment.
 
 
I used several gemstones, a couple of acrylic stick pin stars, black tulle [which I have had for what seems like forever!] and antique buttons as embellishments.
Well that's it for today. Hope you get a chance to stop by tomorrow and check out my card for the new challenge over at Meljen's Designs.
hugs,
Nancy
