Card Caravan and More

Hey there! Can you believe that September is gone?  Where has this year been flying off to?  I can not believe that today starts October!!  Yesterday, the last day of September, started a new 2 week Card Caravan challenge at The Hybrid Chick.   Did you know that September means 7th month? But it's the 9th month!!  Back when it was named, September was the 7th month of the Roman Calendar.

This is my inspiration to the new Card Caravan Challenge at The Hybrid Chick. For this challenge we are asking you to use 7 items in your project. It can be more, but there has to be 7 identifiable items. Sounds hard, doesn't it? It was actually easier than I thought! In fact, I had to remove somethings from my card to get it down to 7 items!!

Halloween Party Kit by Quirky Twerp was perfect for creating a wonderful Halloween themed card. The kit is adorable with lots of cute stuff for making scrapbook pages, invitations, party favors, decoration and more!  Wondering what my 7 items are?
  • 2 patterned papers
  • 1 bracket trim
  • 2 patterned papers for oval frame
  • 1 vintage image on frame
  • 1 Sentiment tag
Now you can see how easy it is to have 7 items on a card or project. So how about joining in on the challenge?

Yes, this card is hybrid.  I designed it in Silhouette Studio and simply dragged in the digital papers and elements. I used the print-and-cut feature (love it!) of the Silhouette to print and cut all the components of the card.

Some extra exciting news today, I am a winner at The Catered Crop, They are having a Halloween themed swap and you'll see my project featured next Sunday!! Come on and stop by!
