Day 17 - I've got my eyes on you

Hi and welcome to everyone from the 31 Days of Halloween blog hop!  If you want to see more of the awesomeness that this blog hop has to offer, the you can find the blog roll on the left in my sidebar.

Today was full of excitement while making this card!  I was digging around looking for something orange to go on my card and couldn't find the perfect piece in my stash.  So I started digging around on my table and came across my Cuttlebug.  My poor bug - I haven't used her in over 12 months.  Well I dusted her off and started to look through my embossing folders.  Low and behold I came across an unopened Halloween pumpkin folder!!!!  I was so excited, it was like my birthday and Christmas all in one!  Now you can see the funky pumpkins to the left.  I also found some other new folders that will now be making an appearance in upcoming cards.

I used a sketch from Retro Sketches to build my card and an image from Meljen's Designs for the image.
I coloured the image with Copics and made the tag look like aged card.  The sentiment is raised on foam dots and the edges of the image and tag are inked in black.  The whole bottle has been covered in gloss.

Thanks for visiting my blog today :)
