Halloween is almost upon us and, appropriately, the challenge theme at One Stitch at a Time this week is.....
.....BOO! :D
For my card this week I've used BBKakes' rather funky Skull Diva digi stamp:
I love this stylish little rock chick with her skull accessories. :) I coloured her with my Promarkers and fussy cut her out:
I wanted a Halloween-y background for my card so I chose this fabulous haunted house shape on my Cameo and cut it out on black card. I layered it over a background made by blending Distress Inks.
To finish I stamped a greeting in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Silver Pearl embossing powder and then added my cut-out image using foam pads for a touch of dimension.
You don't need to use a Stitchy Bear product to enter the challenge but if you do (and we'd love to see your Stitchy Bear creations!) you'll be in with a chance of winning our main prize. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear Product will be entered into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.

This is such a pretty card that it is hard to believe that it is a Halloween card Ali. Your image looks so sweet and demure .....and then my focus falls on her accessories ...All I can say is that she receives something as sweet as candy to put in her scull bag, when she knocks at the door of the haunted house. I love the very eerily backing paper you have created ....adds so much atmosphere to this card. Love Ingrid xx

totally fun card. I love that the haunted house is silhouetted and you have just a little color with that purple and blue. Not your traditional Halloween colors which is why I love it even more :)
Thanks for joining us at Creative Corner Challenges for our Femme Fatale challenge this week and hope to see you again.
