Good morning to all my friends and  followers. Todays post is a Halloween card I've made for Crafting by Designs Halloween challenge. The challenge runs for one week and our sponsors are.

The prize this week is three digital stamps of the winners choice.
The image I've chosen for my card is Lily Monster. This is the first time I have fussy cut an image but I quite liked using  this technique.

Card Recipe

6x6 Blank Card
Image Lily Monster Alicia Bel painted with Promarker and Copic pens then fussy cut. The image was stamped onto Desert Storm Neenah card from Crafters Companion.
Background paper from Joann stores Florida
Spiders web ribbon from GNPE
Sentiments from Michaels craft store Florida
Orange card and gems from my stash
I'm not a big fan of Halloween but I quite enjoyed making this card. I also hope some of you may find the time to enter one of your Halloween cards into the challenge.
I hope you are all having a great week and doing some interesting things. Thank you for the lovely comments on the wedding card you are all so kind. Hugs Carole x
