Peek-a-BOO and a New Design Team

From The Funkie Junkie
I have some exciting news to share with you today. I recently received an invitation to join the wonderful group of papercraft artists at the Creative Card Crew. Of course, I accepted immediately (while jumping up and down). It's a Tuesday weekly challenge and this week's challenge is to make a celebration card. I'm still focusing on all the fall celebrations and chose Halloween for my celebration card.

I love this vintage image from a LunaGirl CD that I have. I printed it out on my home printer. Also, the Graphics Fairy has had some dynomite vintage Halloween images recently and the three letters B-O-O are from her blog. I downloaded them and resized them to fit on my card and to be able to cut with my Circle Nestabilities. The lattice behind the letters is center of the new Fleur De Lis Spellbinder Shapability Pendant. I purchased the dies recently and this is the first project I have made with them. I really love this set!!

The layer of Basic Black has been clear embossed using the SU Filagree background stamp, which I think lends sort of a Gothic Halloween feel. The DSP is from last year's SU Pumpkin Pie pack. The Happy Halloween stamp is one of those Clear Mini stamps from the $1 bins at Jo-Ann's and the stamps on the lower panel are from Pink Paislee. That about wraps up the details for this card. As usual, now that my DT card for this week has been revealed, I'm going to look for some other challenges to enter it into. If you know of any it fits, please leave me a comment. Here are some challenges I have found:

My Time to Craft Challenge - Perfect Pets
Crazy 4 Challenges - Sew Happy
2 Red Bananas - Here's to Halloween
Saturday Challenge - Celebration
Forever Friends Challenge Blog - Colors of Autumn
Stampin' B's Design Team - Use a pumpkin on your card

Have a great week and hope to see you back again on Saturday morning to check out my DT card for Our Creative Corner.

Great card! Favorite holiday is "Halloween" for me, so this one tugs @ my heart! Love everything about it, especially how you used the fleur die cut "sideways" on the inside! Haven't thought of that as I have yet to buy that set..oh, SO many Nest's!
