HMFMC #131

SPOOK Sweet & Colorful using Orange, Purple, Lime Green and Black or any combination of is what is called for this week over at House Mouse and Friends.  There is also a great Blog Hop going on this week that you really should check out.  The DT have come up with some phenomenal creations.   

I think I got a little of everything in on this card.  I definitely think my image is as sweet as can be.  He is colored with Copic Markers, sponged with SU's Green Galore, cut out with a SB Label Ten die and matted on an orange SB oval die, which I spritz with my Ritzy Glitzy Copper Spray.     I found these candy corn brads in my stash this week - another sweet element.   The "spooky" ghost, which I have to admit to you, was my Hubby's brilliant idea.  I just loved it when he mentioned it.  I made the background papers with Alcohol Inks incorporating  the greens and purples and black is usually a staple of mine anyway. Both the image and the sentiment are from the HM  "Halloween clear stamp set"  I picked up last year.       So there you have it for this week's challenge.  I really had a ball doing this one up.  I wish you all a delightful Tuesday.  Even though the sun is shining here I think I want to stay inside today and work on more challenges.  We'll see how this goes.   Thanks a bunch for stopping by to say Hi.
