Sketch Saturday #286...Spoooooky

I have been complaining of late that my Saturdays come around too quickly but this week I seem to have travelled back in time for our challenge at 
where we are being sponsored by the wonderful
Bugaboo Stamps

Back in September, when I discovered Bugaboo was to be our sponsor, I chose this fab little "Frame it Halloween Poem" (the image and text within the orange square) thinking that it would be perfect to use for the end of October!!!
But of course with the weeks zooming by I am spookily nearly a whole month late and I couldn't not use the image I had chosen.  I also had some major problems because none of my Halloween stash is available to me currently so I did struggle a bit and ended up with this very simple and very untimely card.

To make matters worse, I felt the need to photograph it in the middle of the night dressed up as a ghost and my photo is rubbish.  Papers are DCWV and I used only a Memory Box twiggy wreath and some lettering as embellishment.  Perhaps next week I shall make an Easter card!!!
Do come and play along with us this week and don't forget to share some love with my fellow Saturdays.

Hey who cares that it's November Lesley - great creativity should be shared at any time of year!
The wreath die cut works brilliantly with the image , I love it.

Tee hee Lesley .. .. you could say your card is early ready for next year!!!

I must admit I don't "do" halloween .. .. but I do love the colours associated with it.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Love Jules xx

Great card Lesley. I'm glad you used the sponsor image anyway. I actually have an Autumn card made in October scheduled for December ;) Hugs, Deb

I love the sense of surprise I felt when the Halloween card popped up, Lesley! I DO love your card. It's a great image and you used it so well in your card. The wreath die around the image is genius!!
Hugs, Cathyxx
