I am in an Artistic Trading Card swap and the theme this month was ribbon. I created a cute Halloween ATC that I decided needed to be a card. Here is the ATC and the card. I used wire to attach the bat to so that it can be bent and looks like he is flying above Dracula. I also sponged the edge of the purple on the ATC and used a glitter gel pen to highlight Dracula’s eyes and mouth. Some of you lucky people will be getting this card in the mail this week. Sorry to spoil the surprise!

It is Monday and that means it is time for our color challenge. This week we decided that one of us would do a card using the color challenge colors and the other one would do a card using alternative colors. The colors chosen this week were Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, and Sahara Sand. The alternative colors are Vintage Violet, Almost Amethyst, and Sahara Sand.
It may be hard to see but the tips of the stems have a bud on them that I colored in So Saffron. I also used a glitter gel pen to outline the buds and do the centers of the flowers. Stamps:
