The Dark Side

And that's the name of this weeks challenge at Papertake! I had really good fun making this one as it's probably my last Halloween card. I say probably because a girl can change her mind. Cupcake Craft Challenges want us to use buttons and stitching, no way was I getting my sewing machine out so it's faux all the way for me.

Digital Tuesday want to see Halloween, Our Creative Corner provided this fab sketch and Dare you to Digi Stamp want to see black, orange, yellow and white. Saturday Spotlight with hidden potential want us to decorate a tree.



So the image and the patterned papers are digi from Pink Petticoat, aren't they fab? The buttons are My Minds Eye with a little thread knotted through. The sentiment is also Pink Petticoat and the stitched ribbon is DCWV. I doodled the rest of the stitching.

I've just booked a short break to Centre Parcs, can't wait to go and see Zac messing about in the pool. I might even hire one of those bikes with a baby trailer on the back. For those that know me really well, yes I did say I might hire a bike! I might even ride it....

  1. Centre parcs is great, especially if your've got young kids. I went a couple years ago, just me and my hubby and it was so restful.

    Great card, love the pink petticoat papers.
