RCC26 - BOO and TPE122

This is my 2nd post of the day so if you are here for the Paper and Such Challenge, click HERE!

Today is my last day as the Guest Designer at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog.  I had a blast playing along with the talented designers over there!  Thanks again to Corinna McGreggor for inviting me to be a guest designer for the month of October.  It was an honor!  Now on to this week's challenge! 

 This week, around the globe, people are celebrating Halloween! A favorite, hauntingly delightful holiday, Halloween inspires lots of different images! Ashley is challenging us to make anything that is Inspired by Halloween for this week’s Ribbon Carousel Challenge (RCC26). It could be a costume, card, decoration, etc.   

This week we have thesuper fun EAD Designs as our sponsor!
For one lucky participant, a gift pack of EAD Designs products is up for grabs!

Here is my card:

I used The Pink Elephant Sketch Challenge #122 as my inspiration.  I decided to use a couple of cute digi by Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Halloween Brat Witch and Halloween Bench.  I colored them up with my copics and then matted the image in PTI black and orange zest card stock.  I stamped the orange zest panel with a stamp from the PTI Polka Dot Basics stamp set in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and added a few small black rhinestones to embellish.  Then I dug into my stash of goodies from the Ribbon Carousel and used some oh so pretty satin grosgrain double band ribbon in celery and plum satin, some 5/8" black sheer ruffled edge ribbon, and some Halloween Divine twine.  A PTI orange zest button completes the design! 

Now head on over to the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog and play along with us!    Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts,paintings! *** Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace,thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***  Check out the blog for some inspiration from the talented DT!  

If you haven't checked out the Ribbon Carousel Store yet, head on over and do so!  New yummy ribbons for Christmas were recently added so be sure to check them out!  Here's a sneak peek to a new item that will be available in the store next week that will making storing your twine SO much easier! 

And next week on the blog, Corinna will be announcing the new Carousel Crew DT so be sure to check it out!
