Halloween BOO card - 2S4U & Jewelry Inspiration color challenge


Good Morning Everyone,
I have been slacking on doing all my favorite challenges - so today's post is actually three separate posts using 6 different challenges (how crazy is that??) But for the simplicity of listing the card ingredients - they are divided into three posts.

This Halloween card drew its inspiration from Kazan's fun sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You and my new favorite color challenge from Stacy where she gets her color inspiration from awesome jewelry pieces. This particular beautiful ring is from the collection of Kristina Moses and you can check out her site HERE).
I loved the colors and loved how the square colors from the ring went so beautiful with the sketch from Kazan. I had to go with a Halloween theme - I tried not to... but still need some more Halloween cards - but I tried to make it boo-tiful (sorry couldn't resist).

Its still raining here - and the chai is simmering on the stove :) the whole house smells chai spicy and warm - yummy!

Hope you are having a cozy day whereever you are!
Thanks for visiting!
Ciao for now,
Sankari :)
