The Roses Challenge......Happy Halloween!!!



Hiya,

Last Sunday of the month is time for the Roses challenge  and Kerrie picked a Halloween theme.......This year the shops have been full of giant pumpkins, witches hats, spiders and all the paraphernalia associated with Halloween.  So no excuses and no ducking out of this challenge!

I found this printable coffin on the Internet whilst looking for the usual SCS one! I really loved the wood grain look and RIP in gold on the top so this was it printed from the computer, cut and folded ..... job done!

I've mentioned how I've been playing with 'Di the Cut'......... well 'Di' cut the spooky spider and the bat I used to decorate the coffin, which I've filled with lollies and yummy snakes......cool ah?  Still a bit easy though...... so I thought I'd make a card too.  

My base is plain black with a layer of Pumpkin Pie then I cut this fabulous scene from more black card (using 'Di').  The sentiment was computer generated and printed onto a scrap of Pumpkin Pie card. To attach this I've punched a slot either side of the sentiment with the SU slot punch, threaded some black satin ribbon and tied it off to the side.

Can't wait to see what the Roses came up with for this one....... and looking forward to our next challenge.

Here's the link for the printable coffin if you're inerested.

Thanks for calling by, see you soon. x
