Halloween card- well it would be rude not to......

I didn't take much in the way of craft stash on our holiday last week, but I did manage to sneak in a few stamped images and a box of Promarkers..... then did the "oops, how did they get there" face! There wasn't time for a lot of colouring but I managed to fit in an hour, and knowing that all the Halloween challenges would be about I coloured this smashing Sweet Pea image.

Then today I spent some time making it into this card.

The background is stamped with a fab spotty stamp I've had forever, and it's sooooo useful. The papers were originally cream and black, but I swooshed on a dab of Dusty Concord Distress ink. The quote is from my favourite Shakespeare play, The Tempest- " we are such stuff as dreams are made on".

I chose the purple card to fit in with the Tuesday Taggers' Deep Purple theme- especially as they're sponsored by The Craft Barn this week!

Did I mention that it's an easel card? Here's the side view.

Now bear with me, cos I'm entering this into a few challenges.......
