Swedish Collage Challenge

Tracey at Starving Artistamps is challenging everyone who wants to play, to make a Swedish Collage-type card. Everyone who participates will be put into a raffle to win a full sheet of unmounted rubber stamps (your choice). The challenge runs until October 1st, and you may find out all of the details >>>>right here<<<<.

Ok...so I admit this is a bit wild and crazy for me, but I wanted my collage card to be a Halloween theme, since I have recently received my new DoodleFactory Halloween II stamps. The fence is from my DoodleFactory Country set. The "boo" is die cut with my Red Tag Sale Alphabet Cuttlebug dies, and glitterfied with my Dazzling Diamonds. The swirls are Sizzix Scribbles Swirls (I bought mine through SU). Patterned paper is the Hello Sunshine collection from Cosmo Cricket. I'm not going to list all of the "ingredients", but if you have questions, please let me know.

I hope I didn't hurt your eyes today. Thanks for visiting, and have a great weekend!!
