Too Cute To Spook

Well, I think this little lady is too cute to spook...what about you?  This is one of the cards I've made to showcase the new digi release from CC Designs available today at All That Scraps
I've used another couple of the new release images in my second post for today...check it out here (or scroll up).  Why don't you go and check out the rest of the design team's great work at the All That Scraps blog too mucho "Too cute to spook" there!!.
The image panel is cut using my Large Scalloped Square Nestabilities, Birgitta is coloured with Copics, as is the background scene -Swiss Pixies Halloween Scene  - also from CC Designs.I've concentrated on the hair again in my drive to make it look realistic...which may be a superfluous gesture on a girl who doesn't have a mouth, lol.    Copic Oz has All About the Hair as its challenge theme so I'm entering there.
Birgitta is cut out and popped up on foam dots. After I'd taken the picture if my card, I decided to add some Gloss to the eyeball, you can see it in this photo.  I think it added a little something!The sketch I used this time was a's from Sketch and Stash.  The stash I've used, apart from the brand new image, is the fabulous Card Candi I just got.  This is from the Jelly Tots collection.  I coloured the bottom piece of candi with some pigment ink...Copics wouldn't "take" which is unusual, but the ink did the job just fine. The designer paper is Doodlebugs Oogle Boogle- it's discontinued, apparently :-(  mounted on black card.  The sentiment is computer generated, mounted on purple card from American Crafts (I think).
I used one of my many generally-unused gel pens to add some faux stitching around the edge of the card and the sentiment, it just took the starkness off them.  The Pink Elephant has stitching (real or faux, me faux, lol) as its challenge theme so I'm in there.   I attached the sentiment using a brad from my stash.  The purple organza ribbon came from stash too...though I think it's actually from my cake decorating stash which means it's probably YEARS old :-)
The inside of the card is finished very simply using the same Nestie as the front...I can't remember the name of the paper, wish I could, I'd get some more - it's been very handy not just for Halloween either.
The polka dot flower and orange flower-brad centre just cheered it all up a bit.

Addicted to Stamps and Whoopsi Daisy Challenge both have Anything Goes as their challenge theme this time, so I'm entering there too.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT work...and to check out my other post of course, lol.
Until then, or next time you visit, Happy Crafting, Dee
