Twilight Halloween

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a great start. If you didn't get a chance to see the pop up card I posted yesterday, please scroll down to the post right before this one. I would love to hear any feedback you may have :)




For my card today, I decided to use this gorgeous image from Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image is illustrated by the fabulous Elaine Cox and is called Twilight Halloween. This image is so gorgeous and so fun to color! I decided to go with nontraditional colors for this Halloween card. I colored the image with copics and then added a dot of Glossy Accents to the owl's eyes. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My design paper is from The American Paper Co. (I got it at Michael's). The sentiment is from Studio G. For some finishing touches, I added a bow (tied with my Bow Easy), pearls, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Make sure and stop by tomorrow, the Sweet Pea Stamps DT is having a blog hop to celebrate a new artist for the shop. I can't wait! :) Thanks so much as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
