Itty Bitty Betty Boo

I know I said probably no more Halloween cards but I thought I'd squeeze this one in and make it for 10 challenges! I'm in full on lights are on but no-one's home mode today and thought I should be posting one of my DT cards, but that's tomorrow and I had nothing to post today - eeek! So I browsed some challenges and came up with this card:

The challenges are:
  1. Mojo Monday - Fab sketch
  2. Copic Creations - Black
  3. ABC - Flying
  4. Cute Card Thursday - Spookfest
  5. Colour Create - Black, white, red and yellow
  6. C.R.A.F.T - 3 papers, 2 buttons, 1 ribbon
  7. Stampin' B's - Halloween
  8. One Stop Crafts - Halloween (I won last week's challenge - yey!)
  9. Pile it On - Ready for Halloween
  10. Creative Friday - Halloween

My three patterned black papers are all from Pink Petticoat's Spooky Doodlies CD if you can't see it, the third paper is plain stars hidden under the stitched ribbon. I got this fab Itty Bitty Betty digi stamp from the Pink Cat Studio and tried my best to do some grey / black Copic shading. Harder than it looks. The red star was cut out with a Nestie die and I cut the yellow one by hand and topped them with two buttons tied with some yellow thread.

I had to do this in less than an hour as I'd promised Hubby he could spend the day stripping wallpaper in the hallway whilst I play with the small boys. Yes, yes I know how to spoil him don't I? Tee hee.



  1. Love your card/image Victoria! super cute and great black coloring!!! Thanks for joining us for the copic creations challenge! totally fun! Stripping wallpaper does not sound like fun unless it comes right off! oh, it can be a nightmare sometimes! wish you lots of luck!!! lol
