Morning everyone

And what a lovely morning it is here, sharp contrast to yesterday where we had pouring rain followed by a rather heavy snowflurry!!! I've never seen snowflakes so big!!

Here is the card I have made that I was talking about yesterday, I nipped out and got the black card (without getting too wet) and finished it off last night.

This is the first Halloween card I have ever made, so because I didn't have any traditional papers I decided to go with a background.

I have hand drawn the whole scene and then added these oh so cute stamps by CC designs. Everything has been coloured with my Promarkers.

Here are the details:
  • Images: CC designs
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Paper: K&Co
  • Ribbon from stash

Thanks for stopping by, would love to know what you think about my first attempt at drawing a background! have a super day, wherever you are
