Scaring up Some Fun!

Happy Tuesday!
I hope you all had a safe and happy Labor Day yesterday. Ours was just the 5 of us and quiet and laidback, just what I needed :)
I'd had this image colored for a few days but had some "me time" yesterday and used it to finish it up.
It's another card for the Lily Boo's Design Team and the image is from the latest Halloweenies! collection and all of them are just so cute!
Of course I had to include some challenges ;)
Mojo Monday provided the super sketch
Whimsy Stamps asked us to Sew, Sew, Sew, either real or faux
2 Red Bananas wanted Stripes and Dots and my dp has both.
Digital Tuesday wante it to be "All About the Kids"
And both 365 Cards (Day 189) and Kaboodle Doodles wanted charms. I had to improvise a little on this but I think I made it work. I didn't have any Halloween charms but I did have Halloween eyelets. So I carefully squashed the back of the eyeley with my Cropodile leaving a nice smooth hole. Then I glued the eyelets to some small black ball chain and I think they look great as charms!



I colored the image with Copic's and "Dracula" has a green suit today as it worked better with my dp!LOL
The dp is from the DCWV Fall Stack from last year. I used the Martha Stewart Spooky Fence border punch across the bottom and I'll admit I'll a Martha addict when it comes to her punches :)
I cut the image with a labels Nestie and inked the edges with both green and brown chalk ink. The sentiments are from 7 Gypsies.



The inside is coordinating dp and a matching message mat. I added a further sentiment to the bottom edge and faux stitching all around the mat.



I made the image into a pocket and added 3 tags for you add further messages to. Also you can get a good look at my "faux charms" as well! LOL
I hope you've liked todays card and remember you can get this image along with the other in the Halloweenies set in just minutes from Lily Boo's Boutique

Remember to click on the Blog Candy post and be in with a chance to win it all. The drawing is tomorrow evening!
