EEK! (PPA Celebrity Guest Artist!)...

to view the image up-close, please click on the photo
I am so thrilled and honored to be this week's Pals Paper Arts Celebrity Guest Artist! (I'm still blushing at the word "celebrity"!) This week it's a Color Challenge, and how perfectly perfect are these colors for a bright, fun Halloween card?
I used these darling little dies to create some cute critters and set them against a dry embossed background and some fun patterned paper. Along with a few Liquid Pearls, I completed the card with a spooky fence and spelled out exactly what I scream whenever I see a spider (though I suppose I might not if it were as sweet as this eight-legged little guy!) I hope you play along this week and thank you to the gang at PPA for inviting me to participate in such a fabulous challenge!

Cute Halloween card and love your use of the color challenge. I do believe you would screech if you saw a spider with fangs like that one!

Love, this Regina!
Although I rarely do "cute" or even use the word "cute," CUTE is really the only word to describe this! Clever is also a good word. Love the Halloween and the composition. Great job!
