Beware House...cute and spooky!

Happy Bellarific Friday on Saturday!
Here's my card for this past week's Bellarific Friday challenge. My BFF Dana designed this quick and simple sketch (I love quick and simple) and I thought it was perfect for the new Beware House image from Stamping Bella.

I started by stamping the Beware House with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper then cut it out with oval Nestabilities. I coloured the image with copics. It's difficult to see in the photo but I coloured the windows with my yellow Spica glitter pen so they'd sparkle. I had a hard time deciding what shades to colour the houses because they kinda look like they're wrapped like mummies to me, so technically they'd be white-ish. But I decided they would be so much more fun with colour. :)





The background paper is Basic Grey Eerie...love it!!! I layered it onto some orange then stitched around the edges. I used my new MS spiderweb punch on green cardstock and added some black sparkly ribbon. I finished the card with two burnt honey Bonbons in the top left corner.

I hope you already checked out the eye candy on Bloggabella, but if not, pop over there and have a peek at all the submissions for this sketch...they're fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by!
