An Old Crow for the Blogger Challenge

Sometime during the night I had a vision of this card and couldn't wait to put it all together, hoping of course, that I would remember it.  This week at Lisa's Bloggers Challenge it's a sketch and I used used Artistic Outpost stamps from Whimsical Melange and Haunted Halloween.



The bg is made using Distress Stains over embossed cs.  Thanks for stopping by....if you wish to join us at the BC this week, please start at Lisa's.  hugs

Oh such awesome colors! Love that old crow standing in the offset circles! Funny thing is I had eye-balled him and then went with the Pumpkin! Love this!

Is this your favorite time of year, Gerrie? Your raven looks wonderful against the bg effects!

Awesome card. - There are so many great details on this card. I love the Crow image and the punches you used. - Isn't it funny how we often get our ideas at night when we should be sleeping.

This is awesome! Are those the new Distress Colors for this Autumn? I just pre-ordered mine. I can't wait...but I could never make them look as amazing as you did with this card! I love everything about it...That black line is very intriguing to me! What is that made of? It's gorgeous! And, the background sheet with embossing possibility--beautiful. I like the torn paper...it all...is INCREDIBLE!

CHA for me tomorrow! Can't wait!

He IS Able!
