One card two challenges.. Top Tip Tuesday - Easel card http://toptiptuesday.blogspot.com/
and a tip: when making a card no matter what size see if you can make the background paper part of the design like I cut this so the bugs would show looking like they are crawling on the wall and she pulled one off and an embellishment one is in her fingers.
The other challenge is for Simon Says - using multi fold card http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/ I think the easel card is consider a multi folded card.
I don't often make Halloween cards but I do have the papers and the stamps so I made a card. I used a bug that I got in a package of assorted bugs for when I had some brass little lizards on a wall in my house and I glued a bug to the wall so it looked like the lizard was going for it. At the time it was cute but that is gone. I still have the lizards they are awesome but they are on shelves vs. walls. Hay ya like the green wart on her nose?
Paper: recollection, SU lovely lilac.. Stamp: Visual image, Mostly animals, Darcies.. Accessories: bug, flower out of stash, embossing powder, American Craft brads, Viva pearl pen, Copics.
