A Horribly Happy Halloween…

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, so that means it’s time for a new 10 Minute Craft Dash! I can’t believe how quickly the weeks are going by lately. Do you feel the same?

This time, I decided it was a very Halloween-y colour scheme. I don’t do a ton for Halloween, card-wise, but sometimes it’s fun to break out the creepy stuff.

I remembered that I had a pack of last year’s Halloween papers from October Afternoon, so I decided to put those to work.

Here is this week’s colour scheme:

So I went with orange, black and green, which I thought worked perfectly for Halloween.

Here’s my card:

Isn’t that music paper fun? I love how creepy it is. I really want to create some kind of a mini album for Halloween, but just never seem to get around to it. So I hoard the papers, and keep it as ‘the plan’, and somehow, it just sits. I know that you all know exactly what I am talking about!

Anyway, this card took me 7:58 to complete, and that was after I really debated what to do with the baker’s twine – do I, don’t I…? I am glad I did!

Head on over to the Pretty Pink Posh blog to find out more about this week’s sponsor, and play along for yourself!
