Halloween Costumes :)

Good Morning! Well, it doesn't look like a Halloween card, now does it? Well, it's not, but the bunnies are dressed up like bees, so I figured that counts :)

I love this stamp, it's from Stampabilities and it's called Buzzy Friends - Hop-it Bumble (I'm not sure which part is the real name so......). The sentiment I used is from Whipper Snapper. This card is based on the sketch challenge at SCS for this week. I used K&Co Wild Saffron paper. Jen Ofiana got me hooked on this stuff. She kept using it on her cards and I LOVE her style so I decided to get some of this cool paper myself. It really is fun to use. I colored the images with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and then added ribbon to the card. I adhered the image onto the card with photo corners and added dew drops to the corner. Oh, you can't tell very well from the picture, but the bee wings are glittered and sparkle just enough. If you enlarge the picture you can see it better.

Thanks everyone for your concern about my family in Louisiana and Hurricane Gustav. I really appreciate it! Everyone is fine. My parents didn't have any damage at all. My brother had minimal damage although many people in Baton Rouge, are still without power. It's a scary thing, but thank goodness this one wasn't anything like Katrina.
