Card No.2 Challenge #107 at Glitter N Sparkle

And now onto the next Card.
Well Autumn has definitely arrived here 
in my neck of the woods, 
everything is turning orange and copper, 
and the weather well that's just getting nasty. 
Yes its all wet, windy and cold, 
and I really dislike the cold. 
Anyway its getting to that time of the year
where all the kids are looking forward to 
And here is no exception,
well apart from that certain 'KIDS'
are technically adults lol.
My partner just loves this holiday,
If he could have his way it would be a full out 
Spook Fest.
(me I'm scared of my own shadow lol).

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Use Some Orange

My 2nd project for this week is:-

Mandi + Sheba Digi Stamp 
from Lacy Sunshine
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I made a 17 x 12.5 cm Card from
White Card
I then cut out a 16.5 x 12 cm rectangle
from Orange Card
Next I used a piece of Animal Wallpaper 
that I had Lying around,
cut to 8 x 12 cm.
(I have a habit of going to DIY stores 
and taking a piece of the Free wallpaper samples - 
Just because they take my fancy)
I then wrapped a 
7cm Black Lace
(Boyes Haberdashery)
around the Middle of the card.
Next I printed off the Image twice
on White DC Paper,
and coloured it in 
using my Promarker Pens.

  Mandi (Girl) -  Vanilla (Skin)
                                             Satin (Skin)
Dusky Pink (Cheeks)
Cyan (Eyes)
Coral (Eyeshadow, 
Ears, Paws + Ribbon)
Poppy (Lips)
Cool Grey 3 (Hair)
Cool Grey 5 (Hair)
                                             Black (Hair)
Honeycomb (Suit)
Spice (Cuffs + Ribbon)
 Sheba (Tiger) - Cyan (Eyes
Coral (Ears + Nose)
Honeycomb (Fur)
Black (Eyes + Nose)
Ground - Meadow Green (Grass)
Apple (Grass)
Grass (Flower Leaves)
Gold (Flowers
I used my White Shake Pen
to highlight the Eyes.

I Die-Cut out the Image using
the Large Ornate Frame
and using the 2nd Image and fussy cut out 
Sheba and the Flowers,
and Decopaged them up.

For my Sentiment I used
a 'Happy Halloween' Clear Stamp
(Trick or Treat, Pumpkin + Aubergine Set, 
Daisy + Dandelion)
with Tuxedo Black Ink
on the Orange Card.
Which I Die-Cut out using 
a 4cm Circle
And added it to a Gold and Orange Pearl
Card Charm 
(Bev's Card Charms).

To finish my Card off I added
Iridescent Orange Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to Mandi's Ribbon.
and 2mm Black Gems
to her Cuffs.
Finally I added 3mm Iridescent Orange Gems
5 around each of the top Corners.
