Happy Lil Haunts!!

Okay, okay. So I stuffed up and thought that we were changing the Lil Lolita posting times to midnight tonight, instead of last night, so now I am late!!  Anyway here I am now with my card for the Lil Lolita Boutique challenge this week, which is a colour challenge, fitting in with the preview of the new Lil Lolita release of..... drum roll ....... The Lil Haunts. The colours are Purple, Black and Orange.

I had no DP paper that fitted in with the Halloween theme or the colours so I made my own. The bats in the background are from the Digital stamp set by Heather Rolin - Going Batty stamp set. The spider web edging for Ghostly Willow, sentiment and the orange Skull are also from this stamp set. This is available over at Tickled Pink Stamps, which is where the Lil Lolita's are of course from!! The brad I made with the build-a-brads from Stampin' Up by adding crystal effects to the top and sprinkling on some purple (and gold, as it is the kids glitter!!) glitter on top and then adding a little more crystal effects to the top. I must say when I saw this theme I was a little apprehensive as I have never done Halloween before but all in all I am pretty happy with the result. So please join us over at Lil Lolita Boutique this week, I look forward to seeing your entries.
