Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Spooky or Whimsical

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT card


This week it's Bridget's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...and she has chosen:

'Spooky or Whimsical'

As it's the last challenge of the month, it's your last chance to be included for the draw for the prize from our fabulous sponsor The Stamping Boutique.

I went with 'spooky'...I've really been enjoying making Hallowe'en card this year! lol
The cute little 'witchy mouse' is from the 'Be Very Scared' set by Penny Black...coloured using watercolour pencils. I used a mixture of Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz folders for the embossing...inking over the raised areas using a white inkpad.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies...please visit the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

Hi Helen, what a lovely card. This cute mouse reminds me somehow of the lady teacher in Harry Potter (the one in the green) I am sorry but I don't know her name. The backgrounds are awesome. Regards.
