Happy Halloween friends!

I have just finished this card which I made after being inspired by this stamp set and a couple of challenge prompts. Now that the clocks have changed and it gets darker even earlier than it should naturally, I had to take this photo with the lights on.  I’m so not happy about this as it effects the colours and you can’t even see any of the sparkle! So I will take more in the morning but I really needed one decent photo in order to enter the challenges by the deadline tonight!


The Inspiration

This is for the October Challenge on A Vintage Journey which is titled Inky Wings – managed to submit with only 24 minutes to go!

This is also for the October Challenge which is titled Bokeh – an effect that I love. (I managed to submit with 6 hours to go, so that was a relief!)

    Happy Halloween! I’m so glad our challenge inspired this because it’s fabulous and fun! It’s a real pain having to take photographs indoors isn’t it, they are never the same. Thank you so much for joining in with my challenge at Country View Crafts, and have a very happy weekend, Sue xx

      Thanks Sue, same to you. Yes I really don’t like the lack of good daylight at this time of year, it plays havoc with photography! I actually made a second bokeh background but I ran out of time and didn’t get to use it 🙁
