CCM Challenge 54 Cute with a Dark Twist

Hello All
Today is the launch of the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.
I can't believe how many entries we had for the last challenge, I'm so glad that I didn't have to choose the winners lol.
This time the challenge is Cute with a Dark Twist and we have been sponsored by Joanna Sheen.
This card was actually made for my daughter Becki's birthday on the 14th of October. She has always liked things a little bit dark and Gothic so this fitted her perfectly as well as fitting into the challenge. The cat and mouse are most definitely cute and even the bats and spider aren't too bad.
It is of course an Easel card which is a favourite of mine if the card needs to be a little bit special.
The background has been created using Weathered Wood and Stormy Sky distress inks and some glimmer mist. The trees and flock of birds are by Clarity.

I have used stamps from Penny Black Spooky and Trick or Treat T for Transparent sets

 Time to celebrate is from Lili of the Valley.
The Internet has definitely had it in for me today as I have tried to post this twice without success, lets hope its third time lucky lol.
Don't forget to join in and let us see all your wonderful ideas.
Love and hugs


  1. This is a lovely card - and I am so envious of how you have your stamp details recorded! Mine are all in folders and boxes with the packaging long since gone...

    I'm glad I didn't have to pick the winner this time, too - there were so many great cards submitted.

  2. My clear stamps are far less organized I'm afraid. Often it is a case of trying to remember which company made the stamp and then looking on line. What would we do without the Internet lol.
    Glad you liked the card.
