Whooo Dare...

Finally found time to do another card. I felt adventurous and decided to do a digital card, using all digital graphics rather than stamps and markers. It was fun doing it but challenging as well. Every spooky thing I put into the windows or on the front porch had to be minimized to the size of a...a...well...whatever...they ended up pretty tiny.

The digital kit I opted to use was once again "Halloween Hoot" by WinkArtGraphics.

The kit can be found at It is a newer version than the one I have. One of the main reasons I chose to use the kit again was the beautiful white owl you see above. For a couple of years, I have wanted to put him in some kind of card and never figured out what until now. The haunted house is one of the kit's background papers. Pretty cool, isn't it?

For extra decorations I used a Halloween ribbon...even the "Happy Halloween" sentiment is a part of a ribbon. I also added two colors of glitter glue and one Chenille stem because I thought the glittery colors helped the card pop.

Since I elected to write the sentiment directly onto the graphic, I decided to gift you with another version of the sentiment.

I hope you like it. It's been saved as a JPG file.

I think the white owl really helps the black and grey colors stand out. In the future I plan to print out the word art and attach it to heavy cardboard then layer the sentiment above a stamped graphic with pop up foam squares.

Here's what I did with the inside of the card just to be different.

Notice I included a sentiment in the clouds and added a few ghosts and another one of the kit's owls. Only this guy is black and definitely has an attitude. Grin.

If you ever opt to use my word art, I'd love to hear about it. It always makes me feel so good.

Until next time...Happy Crafting.
