Halloween card for a child

Hi everyone!  I hope your week is going well!  I'm sorry I haven't been around as much as I usually am, I'm doing a lot of travelling for work over the next two months so very little time for blogging - don't you just hate it when real life gets in the way?!!  I am still keeping up with my DT commitments though so you'll be seeing lots of scheduled posts still!

So I'm here today with another Halloween make using Quixotic Paperie gorgossity!  Instead of the sassy Make It Crafty Witchy Wanda that I used last week (here), this time I've made a card for a child at Halloween...



Not at all scarey!  Isn't she delightful?  This is Elisabeth Bell for SCACD called Pumpkin Patch.  I used papers from My Minds Eye Mischevious (not much of this left now!) with Bazzill Smoothie kraft cardstock with lots of distressing and inking using Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Stain and Ranger Archival Jet Black ink pad on the chipboard letters.

You can find more of the gorgeous Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Holiday Peekers in the new products section along with other new gorgeous products...
