31 Days of Halloween - Day 12

 Halloween and black cats belong together.  Right?  Actually they don't, but somehow that has happened over the years.  The black cat was the familiar for the witch, then the black cat superstition and the witches for Halloween and then Walmart got into the whole thing and a mess was made!  I mean really, if you want true evil for Halloween, Walmart, Martha Stewart and Monsanto ought to top the list.  But really, who wants to go door to door dressed as a bottle of round up? So, black cat it is!

Alex created this card with an image from QKD called Black Cat 13 Stamp.  Black and purple, ahhhhhhhhhhh.


She added the sparkle burst/star thing in the corner to add a touch of pizazz.  Since I love shiny things, but am NOT a mocking bird, I approve of the move.  I also like the texture piece in the center and the stitching.  The 13 and stars are done with gold paint and really look great up close.
Alex has some super fun stuff up her sleeve for Thursday and TOMORROW come back to learn all about the blog candy!

Happy Halloween!
Edgar

Edgar, this was another great post! Very informative! And I loved the first paragraph. I love that Alex made a purple and black card...perfect color combo! And Danielle is right. Color Box's White Frost is a TRUE white.
