Allsorts challenge 22

It's Saturday and Allsorts challenge 22 where my teamie Gro has selected the theme of Halloween. Judging by lots of your blogs you like this theme so this is the perfect opportunity to play along with chance of winning the wonderful prize from our sponsors this week Pink Gem Designs.

My DT card is rather orange to say the least but it's growing on me. My main image is one of my new goodies Hero Arts F5210 Curious Owl stamped simply with black versafine and embossed with detail clear. I made the background paper by repeat stamping onto orange card using the same method as the owl using one of the leafy images from Inkadinkado 97513......they call this a Halloween set, but a pumpkin is as near as it gets really, but the leafy flourishes and tree are gorgeous and I have had so much use out of this set. The pumpkin is from the same set and the little bat which has no code.

The borders were punched with Fiskars threading water, the wording cut on Cricut Jasmin and the spider inspired by Kath using a button and paper offcuts.

I love the fact that you've made your own backing paper. Great card and the owl looks so good on this theme of card.
Happy crafting
