Halloween Christmas

Good morning all!

I actually managed to win a candy this week, I'm so happy about it! I won a lovely set of Promarker pens which just came in the mail. Lovely colours, I will certainly try them out real soon!

As it's Thursday, another challenge @ Delightful Challenges is in order. Our theme this week is Halloween Colours. We want to see your projects using Purple, Green and Orange. You can make a Halloween project, but you don't have to. I went the alternative route and made a Christmas card using these colours, which was quite challenging actually. I found it pretty difficult to make my project still look 'Christmassy', even though the colours weren't traditionally associated with Christmas. But I think I pulled it off at least to some extent, the brads definitely helped that along :) I also got to use my musical bars stamp I had bought ages ago, but never got around to using, that's always a satisfying feeling! Here's my card:

* Create & Craft CS
* Digital Delights Caroling Petey & Polly Set & Christmas sentiment set, coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noirs
* Studio Light & K&Co HW Mat Pad DP, plus some scraps from my scrap shoe box, distressed with green and black ink
* Posh Impressions Musical Notes rubber stamp
* Christmas tree brads from stash
