Magnolia Down Under Challenge #117

Good Morning Magnolia Fans!!!! It's Sunday morning here in the land of Aus... so yep you guessed it, time for another awesome challenge at Magnolia Down Under!!!  This week we are being sponsored by StampyLand.... Thanks Stampyland:-)

This week we have a HALLOWEEN theme for you.... so time to get all ghoulish and ghostly and show us what you can do!!  For my card, I've used Captain Edwin, and the awesome barrel, skull and Anchor stamp to go with.  My Pumpkin was my husband's idea... he like you need a pumpkin... pumpkins are Halloween aren't they (we are in Australia and well we don't really know much or celebrate Halloween) so I'm like I don't have a pumpkin stamp.... he said I reckon you could draw one... so there is my attempt!!! It actually looks rather cool in the scheme of things!! So here is it... I hope you think it's Spooktactular!!

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you make again this week, you girls and guys are so inspirational!!!

Stamps: Fairytale collection - Captain Edwin and Barrel, Skull & Anchor
Paper: Magnolia and Black cardstock
Dies: Magnolia Doohickey Pennant and Tim Holtz clock
Embellishments: String, Skeleton Ribbon, Lace, Chinese Coin, Cheese Cloth, Hessian, White Paint, Kaiser Craft Epoxy Key
Colour: Copic and Atyou Spica Pen in Clear and Gold
