Halloween is near....

Yep, it's almost that time again.  Time for the little witches, ghosts and goblins to come trick or treating.  I have the best time passing out candy, seeing all the kids in costumes!  Some of the little ones are so excited they can't wait to tell you what they are for Halloween.  My husband, on the other hand, dresses up every year to scare!  We've had kids so scared they dropped their candy and their bicycle! 

Here is a card I made for the Squigglefly challenge -  SFC3812 Go to the Corner! - using Littlest Witch and Ghost by artist Lynne Stansbery.   Here's the challenge, "This week's theme is called "Go to the Corner!" I am sure if you ever misbehaved in school, you might have heard that. Since I know most of you were NEVER like that, then let me say that the challenge this week is to add wonderful decoration to the CORNERS of your card, either one, two, or ALL of them."  My top two corners are embellished with some glittery spiders and rhinestone stickers.  Don't forget, to qualify for the prize, your image has to be from Squigglefly.  They have great freebies to try too!  Check 'em out here.

I actually made two of these cards, one to use for a card swap in October where you have to use ribbon or fiber.  Two birds, one stone! 

Here's what I used:
Copics - E59 E57 E55 0 YR15 YR18 Y35 E00 G85 G29 G24 B12 Y38 BV02 BV08 C00 C4 C5 C6 100 V28 YR68
