Elegant Halloween Card: Day 14 of 31 Days

I decided to change things up a bit. Less macabre, more elegant. I had an image from Sassy Studios that I thought would be just perfect for Halloween. Hopefully, you’ll agree!


I love her dress. It’s so pretty! I colored her in with my colored pencils, and added her to an oval made from Prima cardstock. I added a few orange stars that I have had laying around for just a touch of magick!


If my drawing skills were up to snuff, I would have drawn a mask on her…but after all the time I spent coloring her, I sure as heck wasn’t about to ruin her!

I have some beautiful black cardstock from The Paper Company that looks like taffeta. So I knew that would be perfect for this card. I added the pretty (yet teeny bit spooky) ribbon from Michaels, and a single purple rhinestone.


As much as I love the gore and creep factor of Halloween, I also love to make it beautiful. And this belle of the ball sure does! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Blogs…posted on my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!!!
