Flower Soft October Challenge

The Flower Soft October Challenge theme was Halloween. I thought quite a bit about what to do with that theme and I ended up using some embossing. I used the Haunted Halloween Cuttlebug folder for the background. Then I used the Calendar Borders & Centers from JustRite Stampers. The frame had leaves circling "October", so I used Autumn Flower Soft to cover the leaves. I think the Autumn mix is my favorite. . .at least right now! :) I also added some chipboard numbers to mark the date of Halloween. For finishing touches, I added the ribbon and faux stitching.

Be sure to stop and see what the rest of the Flower Soft Design Team created using the Halloween theme:

Jennifer Buck
Niki Estes
Carole Burrage
AJ Otto
Sharon Johnson
