Inspiration Challenge

Hi! I had posted a new challenge on my MSN group, called an Inspiration Challenge. I chose an image I found online, and used it as an inspiration to create a new card. Here's the pic I used as inspiration:

Then I created this:

I had also gotten these new Halloween stamps from the $1 section at my local Target! I was shocked to find them, but happy as can be!! Then I drew in the spider web by hand since I don't have a web stamp. The total dimension of this card is 4.5"x4.5". Square was perfect for this card, and it will still fit in the regular invitation sized envies!

I hope you like it~ NOW, if you're not on my group and want to play in this challenge, just make something, post it on your blog and then come to this post and leave a comment with the URL of your creation so I can see what you did. This will be fun!! Now, get out there and stamp!!

Have a great day~

Sets: Linograph BG (SU! retired), Halloween set ($1 section at Target)

Colors: Black, Orchid Opulence, Only Orange

Other: Black SU! marker, 2way glue pen, dazzling diamonds glitter, dimensionals, scalloped edge punch, scalloped circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch.

I love the color combination and the use of a dollar stamp set, I wish our Target stores had the $1.00 stamps! Great work, I really enjoy your blog!
