Squigglefly Challenge this week -Use a flower or an Image of a Flower


What with it Fall and Halloween approaching next month, I wanted to use a Judith Hart digital called Halloween Circle on the Flower Challenge on Squigglefly.  What FUN it was!

I had this great paper that had a Frankenstein in one corner and a witch in the opposite corner.  I used Frank, trimmed down the 1" border to 1/2" and then used that trim to make matching borders on the opposite sides.  Using a nested circle die, I cut through the dp and the card blank, making a "window" into the inside of the card.  Where I used Judith's great digi matted onto a slightly larger black circle.  I had this great pumpkin paper for the inside and used another die cut for the stamped halloween sentiment, raised up on pop dots.  The large black flower was one I got in a swap from a friend-it had this neat beaded clear center in it-I colored it with Copics so that the orange made it pop.  Now on to use the Witch!!  Thanks for looking!
