Too Cute to Spook: Day 4 of 31 Days of Halloween

I have a kind of cute card for today. Don't worry, tomorrow will be creepier. I promise. I used an image from Dilly Beans. Love this little monster!

I colored him with watercolors. Same with my pumpkin punch. And my sentiment is from Tiddly Inks.

My background was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Dreamweaver Stencils is now starting to create embossing folders, but as of right now they only have Christmas folders, so I thought it'd be ok to use this one here.

I'll be dual posting tomorrow, as I'll have another project over at the Dreamweaver Stencils blog. So I'll see ya on the flip side! Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Creepy cute!

I do like that embossed background.
I might pick up a cuddlebug just for that image alone.
Love that Dilly Beans image and the embossing as well! Darn you, now I "need" to have both image and embossing folder! Seriously, I think Dilly Beans images are the perfect cross between creepy and cute.

This little monster can come trick or treating at our house anytime - so cute.
The colours are my favourites for Halloween - purple, orange and green - background embossing folder is very cool.
