As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


Whilst the challenge theme doesn’t specify Halloween there’s only one way my mind took this colour co-ordinates palette!  I used the gorgeous and endlessly useful Luminary Circles die from the Stamptember release at Simon Says Stamp and made a cute little shaker card.  The bats are from some table confetti I bought at John Lewis!  I inlaid the circles with the cardstock colours from the inspiration graphic and used acetate for the large centre circle and put a few sequins behind it for some dazzle!!  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted’s Fright Night stamp set.

I can’t wait to see how you all interpret this week’s challenge.
