Feeling Green

Evening all - well another latish post from me, had a strange day today - found out there is a craft shop about 15 minuets away so I decided to pay it a visit - what a beautiful shop - and they had halloween stuff - the whole front window was decorated with ghosts and gules! It was FAB to see a craft shop into the spirit.  So as you can imaging I just had to buy something - mmmm well a few bits - I treated myself to a die and a few papers - It was only then that i was inspired to make another card for the 13 days of Halloween Challenge over at Simply Challenged Challenges

Simply Challenged Challenges

So if you remember the theme is 'Slime and grime' you need to use lime green and distressing - so this time I have kept it a bit more simple than the last one and I hope it counts as there is not too much green but each layer is distressed with my SU tool!

These are the fab bits I purchased from the new shop i found! The papers are just SOOOO fab! I had to use them - the red stipe looks really bright in the photo (I think thats cause of the flash) looking at it here it looks really aged and weathered.  The brown dots are just LUSH! and oh the die - yes I just had to have this die!! 

I also added the pumpkin charm sent to me by the wonderful Anda from Crafty Fresian - you have to take a look at her work its FAB! (big thank you's too for sending me them!)

The image is the beautiful Bride of Chrisenstein Betty - she is available from Simply B Stamps! I just love colouring her up -especially green!!! 

As I wanted the 'lime' to 'pop' I wanted to keep it to a small area and each layer was distressed with my SU tool (I think you cab see it above!) She was coloured with copics

YG21, YG25, R24, R27, R29, W2, W3, W4, W5

Well I hope you like her (and I hope she is acceptable for the challenge!) You know where I'm entering it too!!! 

Thanks for stopping by - hope to see you again soon
