PYC Challenge #6 - Halloween

Can you believe it.... Halloween is only a few weeks away.  I went into Michael's today and they had already started clearance out all of the Halloween and Fall items.  Wow!!

I am just now feeling in the mood for Halloween to be here.  For the last couple of weeks I have been working on Halloween cards for my Mother-in-Law to send out to her grandchildren.  

Today we start the Challenge #6 at The Parade Your Crafts Blog.   
The theme is of course..... Halloween

When Lisa sent me my kit for this challenge I could not wait to use it. 

The collection I received is from Graphic 45 - Steam-punk Spells.
You can pick up a piece of this awesome collection at The Paper Parade 

Also included in my kit was some of the new Tim Holtz glitter.  My color to is Black Soot.  
Oh how I loved to use this glitter.  

This collection is beautiful and fun.  I loved the different colors of the paper.   Below are just a few of the cards I created from this set.  I have at least two additional cards ready to build.  

These first three cards I used the graphics that was included in the kit.
 I punched the cat and bat out of black card stock using my Fiskars seasonal punches and then covered the punched out image in glitter using the Glossy Accents.  
The flower I made using some AC card stock and my Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Sizzix die.  I added a little bronze glitter to the edges.  The file tap is chip board that is part of this paper collection.

For the last card.  I really loved the flowers and they really remind me of the Day of the Dead.  Even though is still has that Stem-punk feel.  I used a stamp from the Sweet Stamp shop to make the sugar skull.  I glittered the eye scokets using the Tim Holtz glitter.   And I took some of the Autum glitter sheet of paper from Challenge #5 for the border behind the flowers and skull.  

I popped the skull up using some pop dots.  

I hope you can join us in this challenge.  And please stop in to see what the rest of the DT created.  You will not be disappointed.
