Gypsy Challenge due Oct. 1, 2010

This is my entry for the new gypsy challenge. We were to make a holiday card, and since my sister's birthday is on Halloween, I was also able to get her card made while participating in the challenge! Yay!
Challenge requirements: Two pieces of art, min. of 1 word, min. of 1 weld, 1 squeeze, 1 stretch, & min. of 3 cartridges.
Cartridges used:
Jasmine -- "thday" (welded)
Just Because Cards -- "happy"
PDDU -- Ghost & tombstone (squeezed/stretched)
Pooh & Friends -- grass
Storybook -- orange printed background paper
Walk in My Garden -- sign
Wild Card -- "Boo"
I used Tim Holtz distress stamp pad to do some shading on the tombstone, as well as the background shape. I used a Sharpie to highlight the ghost and tombstone, too. The sign is from WIMG, and I just snipped off the post part of it. It is hard to see, but the 3 dew drops on the bottom right corner are amber and purple.
I have to say that I love designing on my gypsy!


  1. Mary this is an adorable card.... you are really good at this!

  2. Thanks, Sheila! It is fun trying your gypsy challenges on the forum.
