After our warm and sunny week last week, autumn seems to be back with a vengeance here, so it seemed appropriate to be working on a Halloween card this weekend. I think Tilda looks so sweet, if a little bemused, all dressed up and ready to spook.

Tip - If I cant find right shade of card for die cuts to embellish my cards, I use promarkers on white card instead to get exactly the right colour.

7 Kids - Fall
Crop Stop - Dainty Doily
Stamping for the weekend - Colours of Autumn
Fussy and Fancy - Fall or Halloween
Crafty Ribbons - Pretty Spooky
