Magical Monday Die Cut Challenge

WOO HOO!!! I'm back and will be visiting everyone real soon. Hubby on the mend, no more doctors until January (I hope) and all is well on the home front.

The challenge at Paper Cupcakes this week is by Gloria and she wants us to use die cuts on our projects. With Halloween being so close I decided to make 1 more halloween card cause I really liked this "Bushels of Blessings" image (new this month) by Nina at Paper Cupcakes.  Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see the wonderful inspiration by the design team.  I'm looking forward to seeing your entry this week!

The following tools and supplies were used:
  • Image: Bushels of Blessings by Nina at Paper Cupcakes
  • DP is digital paper from Cool Scraps Digital and Cajoline-Scraps as are some of the element dies
  • Sentiment is computer generated and cut out using an MS border punch with a combination of Marigold and Vintage Photo for distressing
  • Spellbinders Long Rectangles and Classic Circle Dies along with a CM Corner Punch
  • Copics were used for coloring with stickles added for a little bling
  • Dimensionals were used for the image to give it that 3D effect
Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope to see you again real soon. Now I'm off to visit everyone and to see what's new with you. First stops are all of you that have left such sweet comments, prayers and hugs during my absence.  See ya soon!
"Hugs" Granny (Carol)

Very cute! What a great idea to have the scarecrow sitting on the realistic hay! Do those ghosts and moon glow in the dark? OOOoooo Very Scarey! The sentiment looks perfect with the drippy border! Lots of cool elements on this!

First so happy to read that hubby is doing better! I'm sure that means that you are feeling much better too!
Second, really great card, love the goo border on the sentiment, and the white just jumps off the card!

These cards are wonderful and you certainly left me with some inspiration...I have such trouble bringing a card together and you make it look so easy and pretty. Something I must work on....thank you for you comments...they inspire me and thank you for leaving with some inspiration from your cards.
