Bearlymine Challenge - 27 September 2011

Over at the Bearlymine Challenge this time the topic is "use 3 different designer papers".  The ever so talented Donna has designed some gorgeous freebie Halloween papers so it would be very rude not to have a go.
For my card I printed off the criss-cross paper, the orange script paper and the third paper I used I needed some therapy for when I cut around the spiders web as I HATE spiders.  The image is from Digital Delights and is called Spooky Pumpkin - not sure why he got that name do you????  I have coloured the image in with my trusty Promarkers.  The style of card I picked up from watching Julie's Craftwork Cards show on QVC yesterday and it's a little concertina card.  I have cut strips of the papers to fit the gaps of the concertina and inked all the edges with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink pad.  The card is finished off with some handmade flowers with the centre made from circles of material with slits cut in, die-cut scalloped circles cut from an old book and distressed with Black Soot and all kept together with a black brad.  The card is finished off with a die-cut mount, sentiment off the computer and some gorgeous bright orange spider/spiders web ribbon.
