Charisma cardz #40–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you are surviving the dreadful winds and rain we’re having at the moment.  I was drenched just walking from my car to work yesterday – it’s going to be a long winter I think groan!!

On a happier note it’s time for a brand new challenge over at charisma cardz challenge today and I am delighted to have set the theme this week.  As it’s almost halloween I thought I would choose a colour theme of “black and orange”, although you don’t have to make a halloween card unless you want too of course.  Here is my card:

charisma cardz #40 - black & orange

charisma cardz #40 - black & orange (close up)

I have used a super image which was kindly given by our sponsor Pink Cat Studio and she is called ‘Lily witch’ and I coloured her with a mix of promarkers and flex markers.  The dotty paper is echo park from the ‘dots and stripes – candy shoppe collection’ and the borders were created with my martha stewart drippy goo border punch.  The fun ghosts were die cut using a sizzix sizzlit die.

As I mentioned our first sponsor this week is Pink Cat Studio and they are offering one lucky winner 5 digital stamps of their choice and our second sponsor is Simon Says Stamp who are offering one lucky winner a $20.00 gift voucher (excl p&p) to spend in their online store.

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
