House Mouse Monday Challenge

I managed to fit this one in this week and all thanks to Priscilla for sending me some great HM images. So this week's challenge on the House Mouse Monday Challenge blog is.. Halloween.

We would like to see your work based on Halloween. If you don't own any
Halloween stamps then don't panic. How about just using a Halloween colour
scheme!! I'm sure you will all come up with some great work.

Here's what I came up with

I coloured in the image with promarkers as usual and layered up papers from Stampin Up onto purple card. I added a sparkly edge to the layers too using a sakura pen. I then added all the extras. The word Boo has been cut out with my cricut. The date stamp has been stamped out and then I highlighted October, 31 and 2008 for Halloween. Don't look too closely but I made a bit of a mess with the stitching around the biggest layer. I'm not a great machinist!!!

Stamp:- House Mouse

Papers:- SU designer papers - pumpkin pie

Letters:- Cricut cartridge - Plantin Schoolbook

Gem brads:- Stampin Up

Photo corners:- Ellison thin cuts
