A "SPOOKY" challenge at

Happy Thursday everyone!  Hope you've had a fabulous week so far!  I've been a bit busy (guess I need to quit running from state to state to do my crafting, LOL) and today I'd like to share a card creation made for Shelly's Images current "SPOOKY" challenge.

This is my DT card and it was GREAT fun to make.  Shelly has really come up with some fabulously fun images for the Halloween season this year and I couldn't wait to see what the rest of the design team created using this "LOVE POTION SET".  
You will really want to go check out all the amazing DT creations ... I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I saw them.  CLICK HERE to go to the Shelly's Images challenge and check 'em out for yourself. 

For my card creation, I used Prisma pencils & Gamsol for the coloring.  Chalks were used for the 'glowing' background on the image and the spiders are from a G Studio clear stamp set.  I've also used cheese cloth to mimic cobwebs and a touch of Crystal Effects to give the bottles a glassy shine.

Here are a few qualifying challenges I'd like to enter this creation into:
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean Challenge - Anything Goes
Lady Anne Challenge - Anything Goes
Eureka Stamps Challenge - Halloween/Spooky
Forever Friends - Halloween/Fall
Hooked On Crafts - Halloween
Lexi's Creations - Halloween

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
