Cat O Lantern

Hey everyone, I am so excited that the weekend is almost here. I am going to be busy making 22 treat bags for Wyatt's Kindergarten Halloween Party next week. I am super excited to make them. Of course I am still trying to decide on what images to use.

Well it's Thursday and that means NEW RELEASE DAY over at Meljen's Designs. Check out these fabulous images (which can be purchased along with the rest of Meljen's fabulous images, at the the Whimsy Stamps shop).


Wow, aren't they great? Well as always, with the new release comes a new CHALLENGE. Yay. This week's challenge is ANYTHING GOES. Ah that sort of leaves it wide open now doesn't it. Head on over to the Meljen's Designs DT blog so that you can check out this week's challenge along with all the fabulous DT examples using the new images. FYI, the challenge gives you a chance to win free images.

My card to share today is using Cat O Lantern from this week's release. I dug out last year's DCWV Fall Stack and picked out a couple papers I thought would compliment the image. I took some brown ink and sponged the edges of everything, the cardstock, the PP and even the image. I added in some eyelets (which I love but don't use often enough) and a cute pumpkin brad. The ribbon was from a RAK I received a while back so not sure what brand it is but I thought it went well.
