Today is the last day of Authentique Paper's October Sketch Challenge. They had one for a page and one for a card. I ran out of time so I was only able to get a card completed. Here's their sketch
...and here's my take on it :)
|Happy Halloween by Margie Higuchi|

I really enjoy Authentique's designs and how easy their die cut elements help create a finished look. Unfortunately, my LSS ran out of those die cut elements so I made due with a little handwritten "Happy Halloween" in silver paint pen.
Last month, Spellbinders Blog Team Member Linda Duke created this REAL COOL bottlecap Halloween scene that I just had to "lift." Hers is much better with great details...mine is a quickie! Thanks, Linda, for the inspiration! Not sure how long this S4-279 Graveyard Scene and Shapes die template is available (limited edition) but if you're interested, RUN and ORDER NOW!! If you're in the Chicago area, I know Craft Fancy (Arlington Hts. IL) had one left (call ahead - just in case)!! This baby is displayed at the store :)

Can you stand for another Halloween-themed project? Yesterday was my turn at posting something FUN for TaDa Creative Studio's FaceBook page so I thought a Halloween ATC would be appropriate :) This line, Just Chillin' Collection, is actually for teens but the colors and some of the patterns kind of remind me of Halloween, no?
