StampinB Halloween Challenge

Happy Thursday! It's time for a new challenge from the Stampin' B's Design Team. This week Faith is our hostess, and she is challenging us to make a Halloween card. I had so much fun with Mr. Smiles earlier in the week that I just had to press him into service again:

That SPOOK bingo card is another digital element from the Haunted Collection by Carina Gardner that I first used earlier this week. Mr. Smiles once again was colored with colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. And that bejeweled spider web? An adhesive embellishment I picked up in a clearance rack at Target last year after Halloween. (Unfortunately, there was no way to try out how it would look against that bingo card without it sticking. I'm afraid that it blends into the background way too much. It would have looked better if I'd adhered the web to some vellum and cut out around that before adding it to my card. Ah, well. Hindsight really is 20/20.)

I'm playing along with these challenges:

Thanks so much for dropping by today. If you'd like to try your hand at this week's Stampin' B's Challenge, post your project on your blog or SCS gallery, and link it up to the Inlinkz tool on the Stampin' B's blog. We'd love to see what you create!! :)

See you soon!
Emily

Your purple monster is just as cute in purple as in the earlier orange! Love your card and the the purple twine and 'boo' border both work so nicely. I am sure the spider web twinkles quite nicely IRL! And spider webs are never obvious until you walk through them or company is visiting! :D
Thanks for sharing! :)

I bet in person the web adds just the right amount of sparkle & doesn't blend in nearly as much. Hard to capture it in a photo. I love all the purple & the bright green - and Mr. Smiles is adorable in any colour, apparently :)
