Hi everyone. Today’s card features the fabulous image called ‘Trick or Treat’ from the talented Mo Manning, and as the Challenge at Mo’s Digital is for Halloween this week, she is perfect. The look on that poor dog’s face gets me every time…. LOL.

So, as for this particular card’s construction, let’s start from the top and work backwards. The image has been coloured with Promarkers, though a Versa Color ink pad, in Atlantic Blue, added the dappled background colour to the white card. The larger of the image’s two mats is a gorgeous bit of Core’dinations Card, from the appropriately named, Black Magic range, and this brown-backed black card (gosh that's a bit of a mouthful!!! LOL), is from the Spell Caster pad. It has been fully distressed to within an inch of its life, firstly by being scrunched up, then being sanded down to reveal that brown core. The added dimension that the crinkling up gave to this card, meant that silicone glue was my adhesive of choice to secure this distressed cardstock into position.

The image and its mats were then mounted onto a fabulous bit of imagery from Create and Craft, a digi paper I felt was just perfect for this card. Matt black cardstock, as well as a glossy one, added the layers. The place of embellishments has been taken instead by two ultra large cross stitches in opposing corners, created with nothing more special than ordinary sewing thread as I didn’t want them to be too thick.

Hope that you like my card after all that! LOL. Have a great day everyone!
