SoSS #69 - Pink Halloween

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

No no no, not back to school! HALLOWEEN!!!

I adore Halloween!! I decorate my house more for Halloween than for Christmas! I love everything about Halloween, bats, witches, skulls, Reece peanut butter cups in convenient serving sizes...Halloween is just the best!!

And I am sure you are like me and when you think Halloween, the first colour that comes to mind is pink...right??!!??

Hmmmmmmph!! Every year Edna picks {{{gah}}} PINK for our Halloween challenge...and it's a challenge all right!

Halloween screams for black, green, orange and maybe even a little yellow. But we don't like to make things TOO easy for here we go PINK HALLOWEEN!!

Admittedly I took the easy way out and used pink as a background colour and still managed to get a black bat in there.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Black cardstock (Recollections)
  • PIXIE PINK cardstock (SU)
  • 1 3/4" circle punch (SU)
  • Bat punch (SU)
  • Spiderweb embossing folder (Tim Holtz)
  • Happy Everything stamp set (Lawn Fawn)
  • Fishtail Banner die set (Your Next Stamp)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
As always, we'd love for you to join the sisterhood and play along. Check out the SoSS BLOG for all the details on the challenge.

While you are there please share some crafty lovin' with my snarky sisters and our guest designer.

Another one in the queue for that embossing folder too. And embossed in pink, it makes me think of a dew-soaked cobweb in the sunshine on a pink skied autumn morning. Not that i'm getting all poetic on you or anything....
