Secret Sister Card: Day 23 of 31 Days of Halloween & SBS Day 7 of 12

Hello! How did you like the hop from yesterday? Good luck to all of you that hopped and have the chance at winning those great prizes! One of the Facebook groups I’m in decided to have a Secret Sister Halloween/Fall Swap. We were to make or alter something for our Secret Sister in either the theme of Halloween or Fall. My SS chose Halloween, which was great with me! I made her a card using Beatrix the Witch from Simply Betty Stamps (and a pendant which you will see another day).

Beatrix is one of my all time favorite SBS images, as she is part of the Steampunk Halloween collection (which you have all read me rave about). Today is Day 7 of the SBS 12 Days of Halloween..the theme is “7 Pumpkins Glowing.” Beatrix’s pumpkins certainly are glowing!

I colored her with my pencils, keeping her colors pale and soft. She just doesn't “look” (in my mind’s eye) like she should be wearing black or some other dark color. Though I do plan on giving it a go one of these days.

My Secret Sister said that she loved the card, which made me very happy. It’s not a “typical” Halloween card…I made it to appear like it was more for Samhain, which she celebrates.
How are you liking the SBS 12 Days of Halloween? There have been some awesome projects created not only by the DT, but the participants as well! Thanks to all of you that are playing along. Remember, all of the Wicked Bloggers are listed in my side bar. Thank you so much for visiting me again. Have a spook-tacular day!
