TSG174: Trick or Treat

Hello Crafty Friends -

I’m popping in with another TSG creation.  This time I am playing along with this week’s There She Goes challenge, which is brought to us by Jessie! She is challenging us to use the sketch provided!

TSG174

To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using the sketch, and then head over to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (October 1st). The winner will get a $15 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

For my card I used the Hauntingly Delightful stamp set and created a little night scene. Mr. Grim Reaper and his Skullies are out scaring up some Halloween treats.  I sponged the background using a Clouds Border die cut out as a template and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.  I wanted it to appear as if it were a cloudy night and since there is a bit of *magic* in the air I used purple rhinestones as the twinkling stars in the sky.

You might be seeing quite a few Halloween projects on my blog in the weeks to follow.  I need to use some of the new Halloween paper I ordered… I just can’t resist Halloween images. ;)
