Halloween at Totally Tilda

Good morning and happy Sunday to all. I hope you're enjoying your weekend, I've been chilling out and making cards mostly. 

Before I get on to sharing my card I have to first share some super exciting news!  The lovely Mary of The Ribbon Girl, recently emailed me and asked if I would do a couple of guest spots for them...of course I quickly replied that I'd be thrilled to...well after leaping up and down like a loon lol.

Now here's where I make an embarrassing confession...when Mary emailed me to ask, she mentioned that she's put a not on my delivery note in my last order from them .......well my jaw hit the floor, I'd been so busy drooling over all the pretties in my parcel, that I hadn't even read the note properly and almost missed my chance!  I was so very lucky that Mary was kind enough to follow up with an email. Anyway I'll be joining in with one of their Magnolia only challenges and one of the Lovely Lili challenges, so stay tuned fr those :)

Ok so on to my make for today. We have a new challenge over at Totally Tilda and this time the theme is Halloween.  So we want to see your Halloween themed makes. Now I will openly admit that Halloween is not really my thing.  We don't celebrate it with cards and stuff here like they do over the water, so much as I really enjoy looking at all my friends Halloween makes on Facebook, I don't really enjoy making them, but I didn't go all out traditional Halloween.

I had however bought these wonderful butterflies from Karla's Kreative Korner, and I wanted to use them on my card, so I matched my papers and colouring to them.

I used Wizard Tilda for a magical rather than spooky theme and coloured her with my Copics.

The papers are not Halloween papers, but I thought that the orange swirl really looked good with the magic swirl from the wand, the black text on orange was quite fitting and the black on black butterfly/moth paper gave a slightly spooky feel, I used Orange and Black Top Stitch Thread. I added some lovely black lace, but as I often do I ended up covering most of it and you can just see it peeping out on the left hand side.

The cheese cloth added to the atmosphere and I cut a swirl in orange and added some small Rhinestones that I coloured to match my theme.. You can see in this picture that I added Glamour Dust to the magic swirl for sparkle.

Some black and orange flowers and a little apple from my stash and this gorgeous ribbon with a Star button tied on with black twine added and I slipped a glittery 'moon' behind my image.

I kept the inside fairly simple, some more of the orange swirly paper and plenty of blank space for a message.

I used the following Ribbon Girls goodies:
