Feeling Spooky!


 
Good Morning fellow crafters and bloggers! :)   Dont ya just love autumn? 
 
I adore this time of the year, the misty mornings, glorious colours, wind, rain, dark nights and things that go bump in the night! lol :)  October is also my favourite month as its my birthday - I was born 2 days early for Halloween, although my mum used to say I was quite a little witch anyway! :D lol.
 
My card for this weeks challenge uses some of my favourite Cheery Lynn Dies ever!  I started off with a 6 x 6 blank card base and layered MME papers onto black American Crafts cardstock.  This is also the same paper and card I used to cut all my dies with.
 
For the border I cut 6 of the spider web corners and then added the gorgeous French Lattice Die (which is sooo elegant) on top.  I layered the smallest of the 2 of hearts die for dimension and tucked that behind. The cute bats (yes I think bats are cute!) look brilliant when they are cut and come in 3 sizes.  The flowers are made from my favourite Roses dies and the leaves and stamen are from the increasingly useful Build a Flower set.
 
All dies used on this project are:
 
 
 
You still have lots of time to enter our Halloween Challenge this week, so I hope you find time to join in and I look forward to seeing some very spooky creations!  Dont forget there is also gorgeous and fresh inspiration from the rest of the uber talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
Thanks so much for visiting our blog today and have a smashing week!
