Papertake Weekly challenge - The Dark Side

YAY! Monday is done and out of the way! And with it being Tuesday, that means it's time for another challenge from Papertake Weekly. This week, the challenge is The Dark Side sponsored by Joanna Sheen. Now how fun is that??!! Sounds pretty spooky, doesn't it! And the fabulous creations the DT came up with is going to wow your socks off! I had a LOT of fun making this card. I used, if you can believe it, five different Magnolia stamps on this card. This Tilda actually had a hand transplant. I really wanted to use this new (to me) Maggie that I received from Magnolia-licious, but I also wanted her to be carrying a treat bag. So I took the hand and pumpkin from #293, Tilda with pumpkin, and transplanted it onto #210 Winter sweater Tilda. Yep....didn't know I was a surgeon, did ya!!! I'm just FULL of surprises!! LOL! She's an older Tilda, but there is something about her that I love, and those oh so adorable pigtails are too cute! Along with those two Tilda stamps, I also used #479 bat, #498 African Sun (makes a pretty cool moon, doesn't it!!), and #442 Halloween Pumpkins.

The base of the card was cut using my Cricut Expression with the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cartridge for the castle and the ghosts. I know it looks a little funky down the right edge of the card if you're looking closely at the pic. That's because I didn't want the white sentiment box to show from the front of the card. So I simply put a hinged black cover over the journalling box, and it's popped up just a tad in the picture. That makes the right edge of the card look likes it's cut really crooked, but it's not. Had I had the forsight...I would have done it a little differently.

Cardstock is Bazzill, stamped images are on cryogen white and colored with Copic markers. That's it for me today. Please be sure and visit Papertake Weekly to see the rest of the spookalicious creations from the rest of the design team! And don't forget to join in on the fun, too!
