I'm one of the Sample Makers for Mary, our Color Challenge Hostess this week.
Mary has chosen Midnight Muse, More Mustard and Rich Razzleberry for us this week.
The only SU color I had was More Mustard Cardstock so I used a blue distress card stock from Coredinations (I think it's Faded Jeans) and a Lilac Roses Ink that I thought was close to Razzleberry (it lost a little of it's purpleness stamping it on the More Mustard). These colors said fall or Halloween to me!
I was excited to use my newly purchased Tombstone dies from Spellbinders. I cut the card with the biggest one and a smaller one for the More Mustard piece that I sponged with Faded Jeans before taking it out of the die. I also used my new Spider die from Memory Box and got out my fence die from Tim Holtz Alterations. The fence and inner tombstone are up on foam tape. I added a single rhinestone to the spider body - just to make it more creepy!! (although a spider is creepy enough just plain, especially a BIG one!!)

This is such a cute little tombstone card Julia. I haven't seen those nesties before. Such detail. And that spider is my favorite piece of the card. He looks so eekily real!!!!!

This is a FUN card!! Love the nesties, didn't know this was available. That spider does indeed look a lit-t-tle too real. At least he's got some bling on him. Love the fence, and the sponging, too. TFS!!
