Addicted to Stamps Challenge #148

Hi everyone ~
It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps, and our theme is 'Holiday'. Our sponsor for this challenge is Sticky Bear's Digi Outlet, and the winner will receive three images up to $10.00 in value.

A few weeks ago, I won a few Purple Onion Designs stamps from Kay Miller's blog, (Thanks again, Kay!) and of course I couldn't wait to play with these adorable Halloween themed stamps ~ 





So, I stamped this little cutie-pie onto a stitched circle and colored him with Copic markers. I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the front panel, and placed that on top of a purple card base. I created the clouds with JJ Bolton's Cut File on my Silhouette with Tumbled Glass distress ink; I added the sentiment and a few mini pearls, and that was it!

I hope you'll take the time to stop by the Addicted to Stamps Blog and play along with us in this week's challenge :)

Since I used Copic Markers for this card, I would also like to add it to Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by ~

Cheering and applauding your well-deserved win over at Kay's place! If anyone is going to shine with these PO stamps, it will be you! And your card here proves me right! Your kitty is absolutely adorable, coloured beautifully! The background - both the sky and the embossing - are so eye-catching! Love this! I have some NBUS Christmas-themed PO stamps - you've given me incentive to bring them out and get some colouring practice!

Fabulous card, what an adorable Halloween image ( I like cutesy not scary !) The embossing on the front panel is wonderfully textured but not so it competes with your circle and that adorable image. Again, Fabulous Barb!
