Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge Spooky or Whimsical

For my card this week I chose my favourite size, 8x 8 inches and the theme whimsical.
I used my Lavinia Stamps to make a scene. I love making pictures with stamps.
I stamped with black Memento ink and then used distress inks, Shabby Shutters,Peeled paint and faded jeans.
A Marianne die for the corners and ribbon from my stash.
I have an order to make 4 x 30th Birthday cards, so I have added the rosette (Tim Holtz die) the 30 is cut with Sizzlet dies from Stampin Up.
I hope my customer likes this one, as its so dark.

I am looking forward to seeing your cards this week.

Penny Black Hedgie

This is one of the Slapstick stamps by Penny Black, great to colour in as they are larger images than the normal stamps. I love colouring flowerpots too.

I really must get on and make some cards for my SU blog too.
See you over there soon.
