Halloween Scene (Creative Bug on the Loose image)

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to my two new followers - Alice P  and Berina RGA - so nice to have you here!  Today I used a freebie image from Creative Bug on the Loose called Halloween Scene.  I've been wanting to play along in their monthly challenges for a while, and when this kitty image came along, I knew I couldn't resist!

I die-cut the image into a tag (Taylored Expressions Taglets), coloured with my Prismacolor pencils, and stapled on some black ribbon (Offray). It's hard to see in the photo, but the black panel is embossed with a dot pattern (Cuttlebug Swiss Dots).  The dotted orange paper is a snippet left over from another project (Creative Memories).  I added two sentiments here, just for fun!  The word bubble is a clear stamp from Lawn Fawn and the words are from Penny Black Spooky clear stamps, and I heat-embossed both in white on an orange snippet.  The "spooky" sentiment is made with tiny alphabet labels.

I would like to support the following challenges:

What a cute Halloween card! Thanks for the info about the freebie at Creative Bug on the Loose. I have wanted to play along for awhile as well but hadn't seen an image that moved me. This one moves me! It is too cute! Congratulations on turning 50! I hope it goes well for you. For my 50th, I was diagnosed with chronic myleogenous leukemia. Completely ruined my big 5-0!

Looks like I'm pulling double duty with this one. I love how you put the image onto a tag shape before attaching it to the card. Very creative Kitty. Great texture on the black and great use of white space as well.

Thanks for joining us this fortnight over at Fresh Brewed Designs and of course for also joining us in our current Creative Bug Digital SnapShots challenge (and of course for using a CBD image). Good luck in both draws. I'll be back in a moment to check out your second FBD entry.
