Paper Pretties Monday

** Be sure to scroll down for the new Raisin Boat Monthly Challenge **

Hi there!  Thanks for coming back for 2nd post.  I really missed not playing with Paper Pretties last week.  I hope you joined in the challenge and had fun with it.

This week, we're playing with color.  Orange, Black and 1 other color.  I think I went with a lot of other color.  But I so pleased with my results.  This card was my monthly card traders challenge and at first, it really kicked my bahooty.  But I got it figured out, it's called a Photo Puzzle Card and the directions are from  Sandi Genovese which was free for a minute but now you gotta $10 for it.  My card features three of the new images by ARTish called Twice Bitten, Our Boy Frank and Mums the Word.  Check it out...

Here's the cover, this is Twice Bitten.  The front layout is based on a sketch by The Sweet Stop.  I love all the colors.  I used every scrap of Halloween paper I could find in my stash.

This is what the card looks like on the inside.

When you fully extend the card, you see Our Boy Frank.  But then close it up and then part the middle...

And here's Mums the Word.  I'm also entering this into my friend Joni's challenge Raise the Bar.  It's not alotta pumpkin, but this sweet little mummy has his pumpkin treat-or-treat bucket in hand and he's ready to go!

Cute?!  I think so.  I think I'll do a tutorial that's free.  This was a fun card to create after I got it figured out.  Anyway, I hope you join us at Paper Pretties for the challenge and check out all the other great new images, too.
