A Little Halloween.... and A Little Flowers

Stacey's Colors and Jen's sketch... X 2!! When I first looked at the colors, I thought flowers and I thought Halloween. So, I made two cards with the colors and Jen's sketch...you guessed it... one HALLOWEEN and one with FLOWERS!!

We've been busy at my house, helping my older daughter get ready to move... and it's moving dayssss!! Haven't even carved pumpkins yet, but... Halloween isn't until Sunday and the pumpkins will be carved tomorrow night {cause I said!!}- ever pulled that trump card?? {being the mom, you know!! LOL}

The colors {daffodil delight, basic gray, black, white, pumpkin pie} and sketch....



HALLOWEEN...


The first card uses the MFT tree die-namics with a little daffodil delight moon embossed with swiss dots, large scallop square  and circle nesties, Verve pumpkins glossed with crystal effects and Verve sentiment. Added buttons tied with divine twine, some ribbon, and embossed the background panel with a Sizzix folder.

FLOWERS....


Some of my fav flowers -- image from Verve's Great Friends. Used Basic Gray Basics White dp for the background, cut two white nesties in the same shape, stamped the flower 3 times on watercolor paper and watercolored with basic gray, pumpkin pie, and daffodil delight-- popped them all on top of each other. Used MFT's open scallop border die-namic on top of a strip of black, added gray ribbon {Becca Feeken's tutorial-I need to adapt to a leftie!!}, clear shimmer mist all over the flowers, silver pearls, and a little tag from SU's tiny tags!!

Tomorrow... 8 am sharp back to moving--- along the way I think we will "find" some pumpkins!!

TFL!! Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!!
