Too pretty to spook???

Evening all,

I thought i'd share a halloween card tonight, I know it's early but I love halloween.

I actually made this card last year and forgot to post it, i found the pictures while clearing some photo's from my phone.

The image is from Crafts and Me and I think she is so pretty, I love her clothes and the little kitty makes the perfect accessory I think!

I think myPro-Marker colouring has changed quite a lot over the past year, my skin tones look very wishy washy lol!

I used a flourish stamp around the edges and then added Distress Inks.

I added flowers from WOC which I added black stickles to, and there is also some cheescloth if you can see poking out from behind the image.

I used some Halloween papers from an 8x8 pad and hand stiched them all using my sew easy tool.

The card is a lot larger than I wouldusually make these days so there seems to be a lot of empty spaces! I edged the card with yet more black stickles and added ribbon, Lace, a little pumpkin charm and a hand made flower to finish.

I do hope you like my card.

Thankyou so much for visiting and any comments you may leave.

Hugs xx Cara xx
