A Halloween party giveaway!

Woohooo, it's party time! Vanessa over at A Fanciful Twist has organised a blog party for people to celebrate Halloween, whoot, whoot! I'm going to keep the text on my post pretty short, as I know there are lots of other blogs to go and enjoy. I made a couple of cards to celebrate and share with you all, and if you leave a comment here, you have a chance to win three free items of your own choosing from my shop, Crafty Chaos Designs. You don't need to be a follower, or do anything other than leave me a comment, on Tuesday 19th Oct I'll sprinkle a small amount of fairy dust over the names, and wherever the sparkles land, will be the winner. Have fun, go hop, and ENJOY this wonderful time of year! :D

So, on to my creations

This first one uses images from DezinaWorld (the lady and the wings come separately). I wanted to go for the feel of an old theatre card, what do you think?
This one is being entered into the following challenges:

Order of the opus Gluei - 1 circle, one semi-circle and three triangles
Three Muses - vintage
City Crafter - take flight
S2G Twisted Thursday - 1.Halloween Theme
2.Black and white
3.Sketch (see below)
(4.Dash of color is optional)

And this second card uses two images from Stamp It Crazy and the Zombie Catwalk papers from Crafty Chaos Designs. I'm entering this one in to the following challenges:
Friday Sketchers - sketch 124
Sentimental Sundays - Tag, you're it!
Dutch Dare - tagalicious
One Stitch At A Time - use a digi image
Timeless Flourishes - ink and edge distressing
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Halloween and ribbon
Meljen's Designs - tags
Fairy Fun Fridays - Tickets or tags
Sweet Stampin' - ribbon

And both cards are suitable for the following challenges, so just take your pick ;)
Moving Along with the Times - Halloween
Stampin' Royalty - spooky kooky Halloween
Make It Crafty - distressing
I Did It Creations - spooky
Lexi's Creations - spooky
Karber's Weekly Challenge - Halloween
Creative Cottage - Halloween
Crafts and Me - Halloween
Fussy and Fancy - Halloween
Easy Craft Projects - Halloween
Bee Crafty - Halloween
One Stop Crafts - Halloween
2 Sisters - Halloween

Wow, I think my link button needs a break! Thanks for looking :D

Very nice halloween cards! Both are great, but I love the vividness of that top one. Thanks for joining us at S2G this week.

Chris said...

great Deazina World card. It definitely looks like a vintage Hollywood movie poster.
thanks for joining us at S2G.

Chris said...

I seem to have lost my comment. Hate when that happens - hope I don't leave you with two, not that that's so bad.
Anyway...I was saying that your first card looks just like an old time Hollywood movie poster. I think you achieved your goal.
thanks for playing with S2G.
