Forever Friends Fortnightly DT card - Halloween

Good morning everybody!

I'm posting this from LA, and having the BEST time ever! We came specifically to go to the League of Legends World Championships Season 2 Final, and that was on Saturday evening...I don't think I EVER want to queue for anything ever again after the hours we spent in line for that haha! But the most amazing bit was, we got chatting to one of the event managers while queuing and he gave us VIP passes! Was so good. We've also been shopping twice and to Universal studios, and we're going to Seaworld San Diego today and Disneyland tomorrow hopefully :)

Anyway back to my post. This fortnight over at Forever Friends the challenge theme is Halloween or Autumn. We have to fab sponsors for this challenge;

Kenny K who are providing our winner with 5 digis from the store 


who are giving our Forever Friends Favourite winner 4 sheets of digis of the winner's choice.

So come join us!

Here's my card for the challenge, I chose Halloween but used Autumn colours too :)
We were lucky enough to be able to use some of our wonderful sponsors' images, and I chose this beauty from Kenny K :) I printed the sentiment off the computer, I found it online. The hessian is from my local craft shop, the clock is a Tim Holtz die cut and the corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I'm very proud of myself lol, I distressed the edges and I think I didn't do too bad a job! :) I also used distress stickles around the edges and you can't see it at all for some reason on this, but it's all over the backing paper too so it's all sparkly - I wanted it to look like Pirate Treasure.

A closeup of this gorgeous girly, coloured with Promarkers and I put some Glossy Accents and Stickles on there too. As soon as we found out that it was a Halloween challenge and saw this image, I chose it straight away - I'm hoping to dress as a pirate this Halloween! 

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Your Favourite (Halloween theme and Sparkles!)

Thanks for looking :)
