Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween my friends,

Have you got the witches blood brewing and the 'tricks and treats' all ready for the night ahead??

To mix things up a bit, I have a very un-Halloween card to share with you. This is the a card for Mynnette's DT call (details here). I based this card on Mynnette's sketch here:

I was going to do die cut Xmas baubles but then saw the Trigger Tuesday photo (see below) and off went my mind in a completely different direction! I was attracted by the flourishes and big flowers and using the colour combo from Colour Q this week, my Xmas bauble card ended up looking like this!!

I stamped, coloured and cut out the yellow flowers then raised them on foam pads to give the card dimension. The centre is a little saffron yellow brad. A bit more stamping, a few little gems and there you very non-Halloween and Xmas card. Funny how you start in one direction, then see a photo and you completely go in another direction! I think that makes crafting all the more fun!!

Trigger Tuesday's photo and colourq's combo:


Have a spooky night and stay safe!!
