Halloween Sweet Pea

Hi folks,

I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend!

Today is the last day of the Back to School sale at Paper Jewels to buy 2 and get the 3rd off, so I thought I'd give you all a little reminder and share this card with you at the same time, using one of the images they currently carry.  

I felt like doing something feminine and also felt like doing a Halloween card--I've seen so many of them lately here in blogland!

The main image is a Sweet Pea image.  It's coloured with copics, and then I made the night sky by spreading rub on metalic paste with my fingers.  The lace ribbon was gathered and taped on the back.

Tonight I've got a driving to learn how to be a bit more aggressive on the road, apparently.  And my re-exam is next week, so I'll have time for another lesson or two before then.

Today's card matches up with a bunch of different challenges:

Paper Jewels:  Evening scene
Paper Sundaes:  Mixed mediums:  The colouring is done with copics and background done with rub on metalic paste.
Stamptacular Sunday:  Distress it
Stampin for the weekend:  Shabby or vintage
Tuesday Throwdown:  Use ribbon in a different way (I ruffled my lace ribbon)
