Spooky and It's not October!

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time and the theme this week is

Ribbons or Lace.

You will find all the info you need on the challenge blog here, If you are the chosen winner with a Stitchy Bear image on your project you are in the running for a super prize of $9 to spend in the store. The runner up prize with a non-Stitchy Bear image will be eligible for $3 to spend in store.


For my card this week I chose one of Delicious Doodle's Horroscope - Aquarius, isn't she fab! I've coloured her lightly with Promarkers and added my own sentiment.  She was cut with a Spellbinders Oblong die and placed n a mat of copper card. I've played with distress inks around a plain white card and I've made her a little feminine with her red nails and some ribbon too. Black, of course. The little black cat usually comes out at Halloween but it seemed perfect for this card. It's a Spellbinders die from way back when you could find a little freebie with your regular dies. It was in the days of the Wizard machine, 2007!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
