Happy Halloween

Believe it or not I've never made a Halloween card before! I was inspired by my friend Suzy Q (yes you read right Susan) when she showed me a card she'd made using an Elzybells image. I loved it and hopped straight onto Elzybells website to order it before she closed down. I managed to snap one up and it's been sitting patiently waiting to be inked lol.

Here's what I came up with...

I love these pp from Bo Bunny

I HAD to use glitter...even on the poor mummy and it looks pretty cute IRL

Mary J had used this web ribbon on her card here and I made the fatal mistake of asking where she got it. Well, she got it at Bunny Zoe's and of course I had to have a good root around. I picked up some of the web ribbon and some other gorgeous ribbons, charms and a 6 x 6 pad of the paper I used on my card in the previous post! I've no self control lol. I printed the greeting on the computer and that was it. I really like how it turned out.

I'd like to been ordered to enter my card in the following challenges:

Mary J said...

I think Lisa said it all (cos I can't spell half the words in our LCI dictionary!!). Love it! The web ribbon is great - a bit more trendy than using the usual ribbon I think! I also love how you've done the ribbon - very clever! Gonna pinch that idea!

Mary J said...

Me again! Is there a Stampin' Up demonstrator you can recommend pls? I wanna get some SU goodies! thx

Anita said...

Kerry, this is absolutely Spooktacular! Well, for your very first Halloween card, this is flabulous. I love that image, it really is so cute. And the papers are perfect. Now, I gotta find some of that web ribbon before next year lol!

Elaine said...

Great card Kerry! I've never made a halloween card either however if you were a scrapper, you could play with halloween stuff a LOT more (I know I'll never convince you but I can try)! I got that paper at craft world last time too, very cute. Did you manage to buy anything else at the SECC then? x
