Halloween Flowers {Scrapy Land}

Welcome, dear Blogging Friends, 

It is time for the mid month Scrapy Land Challenge
The Challenge is open until October 28. 
The theme is HALLOWEEN using any die manufacturer which Scrapy Land sells (electronic die cuts do not qualify)Scrapy Land sells over 40 brands of dies, including overseas products, and most are at a great discount plus free shipping over $75!

My card uses the following die cuts:

Scrapy Land Spellbinders Decagons

The Spellbinders Decagons layers create a geometric, spooky full-moon for the black cat!  

This card uses the October Sketch from Cheerful Sketches Challenges. Instead of the square for the image, I used Spellbinders Gold Labels 4.

I lightened up the black a bit so you can see the velvet glittered black leaves in contrast:

TIP: Do your fingers fumble like mine? 
If so, you might enjoy my Tutorial for making tiny rose buds:

After rolling your "piece", a bud is formed:

Happy Crafting!
