Little Red Riding Hood - twisted

because really, with me would you expect anything less? :)

So, riddle me this Batman....When is Christmas paper not Christmas paper? When you use it on a Halloween card silly!

The background paper is from Memory Box and is called Spiceberry. It is the Christmas/holiday paper this year. I thought it was perfect for this Halloween card. Wonder if the company ever expected that holiday when they designed it?

This is the image you can win for the Stamp It Crazy Challenge #3. Her name is Red Hood and I looooooooooooooove her!! She was actually my pick :) Each of the DT members is getting the opportunity to select an image for you to win and create a challenge with it. THANKS BARB!!! This is my week. So, your challenge this week, should you chose to accept it, is to create a card using a triangle somewhere, ribbon and metal. This message will self destruct in... oops, I am feeling just a bit silly this morning.

For my triangle I used some triangle shaped eyelets I still had in my stash. I am quite proud to say that I believe this is almost the last of them! Wow, using it up!!! The ribbon is that awesome spider web design kind that can only seem to be found at certain time of the year. WHAT are they thinking? The metal is a wonderful spider charm. The fun thing about these charms is the back of the spider is empty so that I can put in a gem or pearl or stickles like I did here.

I hope you play along with us at Stamp It Crazy this week! I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Don't forget that you can always shop for more wonderful images like this, and others, in both digi and rubber at Stamp It Crazy!

The paper is perfect for the card. The image is fabulous and very "you". Your coloring is amazing!

Great card with great embellishments.

Brilliant idea to flip the charm and fill the cavity. Now I need to go inspect my charm collection.

I have triangle eyelets I can send you as well as a ton of other shapes.

I WISH I could say I' finaly done with my eyelets. I have 100 million left. Same wit brads. When you buy paper packs, or kits, they STILL send brads. I'll never use them. BUT, You have imspired me to try to make something using as many eyelets as I can!!!

Your coloring is incredible, and your card is awesome!!!
