Maybe from Ppinkydolls

Our next challenge begins today at Ppinkydolls Challenge Blog.  The theme for challenge #5 is Anything Goes or Halloween.  I love making halloween projects and have loads of stuff in my stash for them too.  I have used an image titled Maybe for this one, you can find her HERE.  This post just had to be photo heavy.  There is so much going on that it is really hard to see it all in the pictures but I tried.

I just love halloween crafts and I couldn't take it anymore! I just had to unpack some boxes!  As you can see I have a lot of spooky dies in my stash.  The skull and crossbones is a die and emboss set from Cuddlebug.  The cat, boo, tag, rolled flowers, pumpkins, and moon are all from Sizzix.  The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.  The brads I picked up at Michaels, the ribbon is from American Crafts. The papers are from two different DCWV collections.

I tried to change the lighting a bit to better show the different layers.

The brad in the center of the flower on the tag I got online somewhere and can't remember where, I have had them forever.  That flower is Recollections.  The tag is much more visible when looking at the actual card.  Here is a closer look at the image...

Maybe from Ppinkydolls Art
I colored her with my Graph'it Markers.  She is done with blues but it looks a little more grey in the pictures.  Her necklace and things on her hat are deep purple but that doesn't show well either.  This card is so much cuter in person, I just couldn't get it to photograph well.  This is my daughters new favorite actually.  I don't usually send out my cards, I donate all my projects but this one I just might have to send.  There is a panel for writing on the back but I didn't think this post needed one more picture. LOL
Here are my color combos used: 
skin: 4125, 4150, 4170, 3120/ 4135
hair: 1210, 1230, 1270, 3125
clothes: 7109, 7110, 7115, 7119
ground: 9201, 8110, 8120
cat: 9504, 9502, 9501
sky: 9506, 9505, 9504, 9502, 9501, 9500, silver Shake Pen

Did you make it to the end of this crazy long post?! I hope you enjoyed my busy halloween card/decoration.  It was so much fun to make.  I can't wait to get moved and unpack my craft room!  Then the real fun will begin!
