A new Halloween challenge at Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en challenge

We've got a new challenge over at Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge today, the theme is 'Anything Goes' but we'd love  to see lots of Orange and Black on your Halloween inspired creations. Over at Cowgirl Up Designs CJ is launching a load of new Halloween images today, I've used one, 'Cat'n'Witch' for this card. Isn't she fab? I really enjoyed colouring her. Our prize this week is from Cowgirl Up, the winner gets 4 of CJs images and the Top 3 also get 2 images - check out the challenge blog for more details!!

I don't really like Halloween to be honest but I love making Halloween cards for some reason. My friend's daughter has a Halloween birthday so I always make her a spooky card, this year she'll be 16 so I think this funky witch will be great for her card.

 I've coloured Cat'n'witch with promarkers and distressed the edges a little. The bp is from a kit kindly sent to me by my blogging buddy Jean, as are the little stickers in the corners. I added some tiny buttons (from the Stampman) to the bp. The rose is made from grungepaper coloured with brilliance ink, I also added a little black glitter. I've also used a creative acrylic tag, embossed the back with some sparkly orange EP and used a sentiment from Elusive Images on the front. I added some orange ribbon and black eyelash fibre to finish off.

I'm entering 'Cat'n'Witch' in the following challenges
Crafts and ME: something for a teenager
Aud Sentiments: Halloween Sentiment
Crafty Emma's Challenge: Get ahead, Get a hat
Baby Bud Challenge: Fall/Halloween
Thanks for looking, I hope you're going to join in our challenge this week
