Why am I making a Halloween card in July? Creativity sure works in interesting ways. I loved Emily's card and she keeps posting all these amazing cards for the Paper Smooches July SPARKS challenge, so I kept thinking, "Oh I'll make one..." but life is a bit busy, so I hadn't gotten around to it. But then this morning I saw Claire's amazing card on Waltzingmouse's blog and thought of the great little Paper Smooches bat a dear blogging pal had gifted me, so inspiration hit. I used the sketch on the left, second down and the colors black/kiwi/kraft and orange. I think Paper Smooches and Lawn Fawn critters should hang out more often. Perhaps I'll actually celebrate Halloween this year living in the US, my poor deprived children have never done a proper Halloween, do you think the over the top American approach will scare them?
