Being spooky at Totally Gorjuss!

Yay, another Totally Gorjuss Saturday!  This week's challenge is none other than "spooky" (of course!) sponsored by Wild orchid Crafts who sell those lovely mulberry flowers and other gorgeous embellies.  I loved this challenge - another excuse to make another Halloween card and this was extra fun!

 


I used the pumpkin and kitty freebie digi by Michelle Perkett Studio - a true scaredy cat!!  Sooo cute!  I also wanted to use up some acetate from my stash.  I first tried stamping a cloud background with white Staz On onto it but it just looked blotchy and rubbish so I used an embossing folder instead - I think it came out really fab!  Gotta try that again!   I made the bats by just knotting some sturdy black ribbon - I was surprised how well they turned out.  Anyway, I hope you like!  Go check out the other DT cards - they are really fab!!

If you'd like to be a Guest Gorjusette (and who wouldn't want that uber cool title?!), then you still have time to email Net at totallygorjuss@gmail.com.  Just provide a few details about yourself and she'll be in touch.  DT call open until 14 November.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock
Image: Melissa Perkett Studio freebie digi stamp
Mediums: ProMarkers, black pen (to outline the border punch and faux stitching)
Accents: Stampin Up ribbon, black flat backed pearls and silver and black velvet ribbon from stash, black ribbon to make bats from stash, printed greeting from pc
Tools: Martha Stewart grass border and punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Xcut punch border system

I love the acetate. You did a great job with it. I looked at your card several times today and I did not realize that your bats were ribbon. Very cute.
Thanks for joining us at MPS. I hope that you come play with us again.

I have finally had a chance to check out your blog and I love it. For someone who claims to not be crafty you make some amazing cards. I love this one because that is a very clever way to make bats. Thanks for sharing.

I can see why you picked this as your fav. It's so creative to have the clear 'forest' made by embossing acetate. And the bats are darling !
