This is Halloween, Halloween, but really can I be frank?

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #312-Halloween

This Weeks Sponsor

I made this flip card from a svg cut I found.  I used the Frankenstein from the Trick or Treat cartridge

I cut and layered 3 different patterned papers from Fancy Pants and tied the twine around the back part of the flip card.  It was an easy card.  I liked it when I finished it and that's important.

Sparkle and Sprinkle #349

This image is from Sparkle and Sprinkle for Challenge #349 over at

I fussy cut the image 3 times, cut out some of the flowers and layered them up with different sizes of foam squares, creating a really neat 3D effect. I added some Stickles to the centers of the flowers to give some sparkle and depth. Layered them on some Project Life paper, some small strips of paper and scallops and some uniball white pen stitching, layered the sentiment on some brown paper and popped it up above the image.

This pre-colored image was fun to use and created a very nice effect by adding a few different techniques.

Magical Wishes

Magical Wishes image by Dr. Digi'sSentiment stamp from Pink & Main Unicorn Set

This is a vertical card that fits in a #10 envelope for my grandson Ellis who is turning 8 this month.  He is getting money this year so the interior is a money holder.

This is a closeup of the work I did on the bottle and card borders.  I used Clear Accents on the bottle which is hard to see here, but the bottle has a pop accent in person along with white Uniball pen, Fiskar sidewinder stitching, Eyelet Outlet brads.  I used the following Copics to color this card:

I also used Copic Spica pens to add some dazzle in the smoke.  I wasn't able to capture in the picture.  Matted this picture on levels of Black, Green, Navy Blue, Baby Blue and white cardstock. 

I added Glossy Accents to the jewel on the Genie's hat and the gold earring in his ear, you can see some of the highlight in the smoke in this picture

I layered the saying over the image, matted it with Fancy
