Frightfully delightful freaky friday challenge #1

Leigh O'Brien issued an awesome challenge on her blog...check out all the deets and prizes and new challenge here. The first challenge is to make a Halloween card using non-Halloween This one took some thinking, but I finally decided on Gina K's "way to go" set with LAD (Lizzie Anne Designs) "out of this world" alien popping out of the toilet looking for his

I cut a slit in the toilet bowl so that my little alien could pop out, his head is on dimensionals to give some dimension to the main image. I LOVE this paper from Making Memories "spellbound" line. The sentiment is from Papertrey ink's "spooky sweets" set and I added it onto the oval punches and then weaved the ribbon through it. The ovals are on dimensionals as well. I did do some paper piercing in the 4 corners of the card but due to the designs on the paper, it's not really very visible. I left the design fairly clean as I really wanted the main image to be the focal point. I love the way this one came cute is the little alien?! The layout is one I have used before and seems to be my "go to" layout.

Stamps: Way to go! (Gina K), out of this world (LAD), spooky sweets (Papertrey Ink). CS: Basic black, pumpkin pie, whisper white and patterned paper by Making Memories (Spellbound line). Ink: Brilliance graphite black. Access: xacto knife, dimensionals, small and medium oval punches, orange grosgrain ribbon, gingham ribbon, crop-o-dial, Prismacolour pencils, gamsol and stumps.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Canadian readers!
