First Halloween Card and GDT for Lexis Creations

Afternoon Peeps,

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, I have tomorrow of work, hehe, god I need it! 

Today's card is a guest design card for Lexis Creations and I have to admit my first ever Halloween card.  I won the guest design spot and initially I declined as we don't celebrate Halloween or know anyone that does, so I didn't have any stash applicable,  I do so love all the images and cards that I am seeing so I did purchase some Halloween papers for the this challenge.  Still not sure what I am going to do with it, perhaps display it in my craft room?  Well, here it is:-

The image is one of the new release digi stamps from Lexis and I have coloured him using Copic Markers and the background is Black Soot Distress Ink applied using the Tim Holtz Blending Tool.

He's  a cutie!

Materials Used:-
Image from Lexis Creations
Moon,Stars and leaves cut with Quickutz and added peewee glitter
Flowers are making memories
Little sweetie, in the middle if orange button, is a joele
Buttons, thread, brad, ribbon from stash
Sentiment is from Whimsey Stamps
Spellbinders Fleur de leys and round nestie
Black soot distress inks
Stardust Stickles

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-

Cutie Stampers - Anything Goes
Penny's - Circles
Delightful Sketches - Purple, Green, Black
Moving Along with the times - Fairies or Fantasy
Pixie Dust - Swirly Swirls
Raise the Bar - Flower, 2 Ribbons, Leaves
