Elegantly Evil Visits Haunted Design House at Midnight Madness

Like my title I had a little play on the challenges.

It's so nice to get a chance to just get to play in challenges. I have been missing playing in challenges and I had some free time today to whip up this little cutie. Can you believe it I actually got this done in a couple of hours. I love it when the idea is in your head and works out the first time.

Now I have fell in love with the Sketches over at Midnight Madness, when ever I have to make a card and I need a sketch to use this seems to be the go to place for great sketches. Even if it's not the currant challenge they have going on I just scroll back thru there older challenges and see what inspires me.

Another great fun play for challenges is Haunted Design House there is always fun stuff getting posted up all the time there and if you have a love of Halloween year round this is a blog to follow.  



( I just love it when the sun plays nice you get the sparkles, the fun part is you never know where they are going to show till you load the pictures sometimes they end up perfect.)
I used Lady Raven from Kenny K and you can get her -- HERE. Kenny K has some really cool digi's that are really fun to play with.
She was colored with Copic's and glittered.
My black flourishes are by Recollections and did have clear crystals on them but I took them off and replaced them with Teal Blue Pearls to match my cards colors. My background paper is by Making Memeories Toil and Trouble. My mat was cut out with Spellbinders and Inked with Colorbox Ink and Stickled. I added some black lace to the background.
Some of my supplies were purchased from The Beary Scrap.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Kenny K - Challenge #9 Swirls and Pearls
Haunted Design House- Elegantly Evil
Midnight Madness - Sketch Challenge #70

Thanks so much for looking.
