My first Halloween card -ever!

Ooohhh... I'm on a roll... two cards and two posts in two days... Yay!

I made this card for two challenges. I used sketch #16 from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge blog. And over at Stamping for the weekend this weeks challenge #21 is "A Haunting Good Time"... so I thought I'd combine these two and use this cute halloween image that I got in that goody bag from Ida.
I used water colour pencils to colour in the image, and here you can have a peek inside the card where I stamped a couple of pumpkins.
The skull charm is actually something I cut off of my summer shoes when I had to throw them away due to wear and tear. Sometimes it comes in handy to collect everything and never throw away anything that might come in useful some day....
The "ribbon" is a bit of purple/blue tulle that I've had for years and years stashed away from a previous sewing project (I never throw anything away...lol). I sewed a couple of lines of orange shiny yarn on to keep it folded and for the added effect of the orange lines, of course.
.
Thanks for looking, and I really appreciate the nice comments you leave.

EDIT; When I was submitting my card to the Tuesday morninng sketch challenge I found out that I could enter it in a challenge at the TSG blog too.... they have the same sketch... Brilliant!!

This is really cute! The paper is great! I have some and I just never think to use it. Very nice job on the sketch.

Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Oooohhh spoookey! :) Kjempe flott kort, jeg er så svak for lilla men bruker det altfor sjeldent (det må vike for rosa ja..hehe) Og båndene med den hodeskallen på var kjempe tøft!

(stempelet er forresten Penny Black - Night things)

Klem Ida

Hei,
Ja, endelig på bloggland igjen!!;)

Men du, har du tegnet disse figurene, eller er det stempel?! :)
Nydelig kort i alle fall!!

You did a fabulous job on your first Halloween card... this is super cute!

Sonja said...

Dette var et av de beste kortene du har laget.Kuult.
Men ble jeg forbauset av at du ikke kaster noe du kan få bruk for en gang????:) Kanskje det har noe med arv å gjøre.Du kommer jo fra denne kjekt å ha heimen.
Bare fortsett å samle på små skatter.

Den skjeløyde ugla var utrolig herlig. Akkurat sånn føler jeg meg innimellom.

Morsomt kort og akkurat passe nifst. Og så ble jeg skikkelig imponert over at du faktisk har eid et par sko med dødningehoder på. Kuult!

Ha en super uke.
