Baby Shark Sharky Sentiments for Addicted to CAS #231

Halloween Magic for Festive Friday FF#0120

Happy Friday!

It's another celebration at Festive Friday's card making and paper crafting challenge and this theme was a wonderful excuse for me to make a Halloween card.  However, I used Ellen Hutson's Twirling Flurries background as a magical background - even though it was meant for snow flurries.  Mind you, the last time I used it was on this card - to replicate my idea of space :-)  I paired it with the Halloween Magic stamp set and the crystal ball shaker die.  

Here's a sneak peek:

As always our INSPO list has many different words that you can choose to make your card.  It doesn't have to follow the theme, just choose three inspiration elements and include those on your card.

Here's our INSPO list:

This is another card that I made for SendASmile4Kids.  You can see I blended some inks on the background and added some sparkle to the inside of the crystal ball.

I hope you will join us and play along with our challenge this week.  We would love to see what you make with our INSPO list.  As always, the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you:

Love your card Jaydee. You created such a great Crystal ball effect


Love the subtle ink detail amongst the swirly diecut detail Jaydee and that sentiment totally made me smile - a perfect kids card!

Ann Schach

Oh my just gotta love a card with a "hocus pocus" sentiment! It's adorable, Jaydee. The sparkle on the inside of the crystal ball is amazing. Have a wonderful weekend!
