My Mum's Craft Shop Do Halloween

Sorry this is late guys, I've had my head up my butt since late last week, and I'm still not 100% sorted, but onwards. It's the beginning of October. I know.

Let's just take a second to let that sink in..

That can only mean it's time for a new challenge over at My Mum's Craft Shop


Yip!! Only 29 days til Halloween, so if you're like me.. and love making Halloween cards, we best get our busy hats on and create some ghoulish goodness. I sooo wish England took Halloween more seriously.. like America. Would be awesome..

That aside, here's my project.

I've matted my cardstock from an Echo Park collection to some orange cardstock and adhered down the layers onto a Kraft cardbase

I added a tonne of embellishments, including some papers flowers, buttons, polka dot ribbon and liquid pearls and Stickles. I die cut a bird, to look like a crow, from black cardstock using a Marianne Designs die.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch #278
Bearly Mine Challenges - Halloween
Love Rubber Stamps - Anything Goes

Thanks for being so patient. I hope you enjoy the card!

Head over to the My Mum's Craft shop blog and check out the other girls projects, and don't forget to join in with the challenge! xo
