Little C's Weekly Challenge #6 - Halloween Card

Hey I revamped my card. Which one do you think is better! I found these cute "orange" Prima flowers and I thought it would be a great addition. Initially, I didn't want to dress up the smaller circles because the card was already busy as it was but after I saw the Prima flowers, I wanted to add it.

Hi Everyone!! It's Jen's of Pieces of Me - Little C's Weekly Challenge #6! Yipee! Okay, I have to be honest. . .this was a tough sketch for me. Mainly because . . .well, it's very different!! I've never followed a sketch with so many circles. LOL!

I figured because I'm working on Halloween cards. . .I will make a Halloween card for this challenge! I used the Cuttlebug "Spiderweb" embossing folder that I bought from Jen's store Little C's Stamp n' Things. She has a bunch of Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. . .she has the holiday ones in her store right now so go check it out!

I am so glad I bought this embossing folder because it looks soooo cool, especially for Halloween. Boy, Cuttlebug is coming out with some really awesome embossing folders. I embossed an orange cardstock then rubbed black ink on to the raised area of the embossing using a sponge dauber.

I added a little spider button by "Dress it Up". I thought it fit nicely on the embossed web.

Anyway, try out the challenge and potentially win a prize. .. yup, Jen gives out a prize to a lucky winner!!
