"Scary" One Layer Card

Hi Everyone,

I had some serious fun making this card:

Inked up glossy card stock with distress inks, Blowed some ink around and added those cute little monsters from  Flonz and this funny sentiment by Lil Inkers - Fineprint. You really gotta read this carefully :)


Also added some splatters as you can see. Reminds me about Halloween - my favorite holiday!
May be not CAS enough for some of those challenges I am linking up with, but I am linking up with them anyhow....

One Layer Simplicity challenge - blowing in the wind
Less is More - one layer splatter
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Make your own background

Happy stamping to all of you and thanks for all your many absolutely wonderful comments - they always make my day!

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it.
