Simon Says Sparkle


This is my first easel card - it was the monthly challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites. I would never have dreamed this would be so easy and so fun! At Simon Says Challenge blog, this week, it was anything that sparkles. I actually have quite a bit of sparkly on this card, although it's not showing up that great. I sprayed my sentiment with glimmer mist in black gold and tiger lily. I outlined the doors and windows of my haunted house with spica markers, and embossed in silver a large spiderweb on the flat, bottom section of the card. Peachy Keen Stamps challenge is having a special Halloween challenge to make a card with a ghost, a bat, a haunted house and a Halloween sentiment. At All That Scraps, the challenge was for a Halloween card. Finally, at ISB challenge, you had to use the colors orange, black and purple.

Your Halloween Tilda is so cute and colored so wonderfully. I have never tried an easel card, but it sure is a great way to showcase your talent. Glad you could play along with us at Peachy Keen Stamps!
