RIP our 20's

And so it's begun! The first of my closest friends has turned 30 and we are all soon to follow :(
So in the spirit of this tragic event I have made her a Halloween themed birthday card. I chose this fun Halloween Digi from Meljen's which I coloured up using ProMarkers. I found some great coordinating papers from Michele R Designs which I matted and layered onto black card.

One of the papers had the spiderweb on so I printed that sheet on to swirl vellum from HOTP and fussy cut it as an element to the card. I used the same vellum for the birthday sentiment. I used velum to give the card a peek-a-boo effect, still allowing you to see the image and paper behind it. Finally I added a three gemstones to finish it off.

Paper - Halloween 6x6 digital papers by Michele R Designs & Paper Pizazz HOTP Vellum Swirls
Embellishments -  Hunkydory dimond sparkles gemstones
Sentiment - typed by me using Chiller font in Word
Image - Frankenpups Bride by Meljens Designs coloured with ProMarkers
