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.

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.
