Glitter n Sparkle DT - Halloween

Hello, everyone! It's Sunday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog. This week our challenge is Halloween. I hope you can join us!  For my card, I chose this adorable image from A Day for Daisies called Black Cats for Sale - what a cute little scene - and you all know how I love kitties! I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and added a sentiment with tiny alphabet stickers.  

The embossing folder is one from my stash that I hadn't used before.  It's called Dot Matrix from Sissix/Tim Holtz.  I think it goes very well here!  

For the banners, I used my Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets 1.  The patterned paper is from Creative Memories (orange) and Forever in Time (black) and these were cut from left-over snippets from previous projects.  You can't see it very well in the photo, but the black banner has glittery circles on it, so I have a bit of a circle or dot theme going on here!

The twine is from My Craft Spot, and as a finishing touch I added a little spiderweb charm from my stash.  I also wanted to play along in Colette's Cosmic Colours Challenge, so I used three of the colours in the swatch shown below.

Cosmic Colours #6
Happy Halloween - Design Seeds
