Day 4 of 31: Halloween with Dilly Beans

Happy Friday, my ghoulish friends! For those of you that don't frequent my blog, I am on the Dilly Beans DT, and we post our new challenges on Friday's. This week...the theme is super easy. Halloween! So break out your Dillys and play along! Plus, of course, it's Day 4 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween.

I used the Skull Squares for this card. Love these quads! I kept the colors very muted and Fall-ish.

The image was colored with my Spectrum Noir markers. My sentiment, stamped with dye based ink, is from Recollections.

I used some chevron washi tape for a simple, yet fun border. I am totally into this stuff now! Well, there you have it! A super quick (for me!) post. So you should have plenty of time to not only visit the Dilly Beans DT at the Challenge Blog, but also the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my sidebar.
