~ 365 Cards: Day 219 ~

This week we are sponsored by Character Cafe, a digital stamp company.

Today's challenge is to take inspiration from candy corn, a traditional sweet during Halloween. Being in the UK, where Halloween is just beginning to become popular, I had no idea what candy corn was, so a quick google lead me to this: 

Mmmm, looks delicious! My youngest would be salivating as he luvs sweets! Now looking at the shape of the sweet and colour, I came up with this card. I just had to use this particular image as I've just finished reading all four books of the Twilight saga and my head's just swimming with vampires images!

Well, the shape of the sweet represented vampire's teeth and the colours, just perfect for Halloween! The patterned paper is from Echo Park, a digi pack that I bought from Jessica Sprague site. The image was coloured using Copic markers. Now did I try to make him look like Edward Cullen??? LOL!

And talking about Halloween, I've been assigned the task to organise a Halloween party. The whole of hub's relatives will be descending upon us to celebrate it! Oh the joy!!! Once again, the net has been an invaluable source of inspiration and I've got my games sorted out (hubs is in charge of food). Just need to decorate the house now when the time comes! TTFN!
