7 Kids Challenge # 5

Hi friends. Happy Monday! Yes...I should be at work but I just needed to post this before I head into the office. I made this sweet little card for my mother-in-law. You may remember, she just celebrated her 91st b-day! She's busy swimming and line dancing and volunteering with Hospice. Plus, she belongs to a dance team that performs for people in nursing homes! I should have HALF of her energy!! LOL! But...I digress...back to the card... You may remember this little Tilda & Edwin image from the Autumn collection. I think it's called "Brother & Sister"...but, I swear, I never EVER got this close to any of my brothers when I was a kid! hehehe! Anyway...I thought they made a perfect Halloween image...they look just a wee bit frightened! I paired this image with Magnolia's Oak Tree image...and will enter it into 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog for Challenge # 5 HERE. Here's a close-up of Tilda & Edwin. Here's a side view (sorry, a little blurry)...I doubled up on my dimensionals to really prop Tilda & Edwin out from the card. I like the result. Inside & back of the card. Here's my recipe...
Cardstock: Stampin Up black
DPs: Cosmo Cricket "Matilda"
Spider web punch: Martha Stewart
Flowers, ribbon, & rhinestones: My stash
Sentiment: SU "Teeny Tiny Wishes"
Flower Soft: Autumn (leaves); Shamrock Green mixed with a little Nut Brown (grass)
Glossy accents: Tilda's "Mary Janes"
Here's a pic of the Copics I used. I will tell you that I used E21, 00, 000, & 0000 for skin; E25, 99, 33, & YR 21 and 20 for the hair; and E59, 25, 33, 99, & 53 for the tree bark. Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by for a visit...and thanks for your comments...they mean so much to me! Have a beautiful day/night (wherever you are). See you soon...Pat

Of all you Halloween cards - this is my favorite -- now I have to have the stamp - oh woe is my bank account!

I love it Pat!! It's just gorgeous. I totally look at this and see two frightened kids! Funny how versatile this ended up being. You saw scared kids (which I see now too, thanks to your beautiful layout) and I saw best friends (hubby and wife) LOL Very cute!

Pat you're really on a roll with these sweet Halloween cards! This one is just delightful! Your coloring and design are fabulous!

Catherine Atkinson said...

Great card. It's funny the different emotions that stamp can convey. In this case, they look kinda scared. In others, they look like kids in the middle of a disagreement.

So cute. The inside is as wonderful as the outside! Love it!!

Norma said...

Pat, what a gorgeous card. Love the colours and your colouring is amazing. Love your use of the flower soft and the spider web paper in the inside. I'm still not sure how I feel about this brother and sister image. I think it's suppose to be Edwin hugging Tilda, but to me it looks like he's choking her...LOL.
BTW your mother-in-law sounds like an amazing lady at 91.
