Shabby Tea Room Challenge #85 {Happy Halloween}

All week I have been trying to get this card together for the Shabby Tea Room Challenge. I have never played their challenge before and I was excited to play along!!  This week they are asking for a Halloween Themed card with the colours Orange, Purple and Black as well as some twine.  So I went to work, using another free digi from Torico. I just love her sweetly drawn images!  Here is the inspiration photo from the Shabby Tea Room:

  • I printed out the digi from Torico on my printer and cut it out with a circle nestabilities.
  • I coloured the image with my Copics. 
  • The cardstock I used is Crumb Cake paper and I inked up my En Francais background stamp, I thought it looked like a "spell". 
  • The DSP is some from my stash and I mimicked the scalloped around my main image at the bottom of the card with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. 
  • I also added a pearl to each loop. 
  • I finished it off with a sweet orange rose and some twine, wanted it to look spider webish and a simple sentiment at the bottom of the card!

Thanks for stopping by!!!  I sure hope you enjoyed my card today!  Be sure to check out the Shabby Tea Room to see what the DT created and all the other cards linked there.
