Boo! Spooked You Challenge at Whiff of Joy.

Today's card is for our new challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges and as Halloween is so close, our theme for this challenge is Boo Spooked You! Before I tell you about my card, I also need to tell you about our new home - over on the Whiff of Joy World of Ideas blog - all the wonder of WOJ in one place! Sadly our fabulous Jane has stepped down from the challenge as she is starting to study - will really miss you Jane, loved working with you on WOJ Challenges!!

I don't do many Halloween cards, and so don't have any WOJ images suited to the spook fest.  I therefore had to put my thinking hat on and decided to use this little gnome who is usually pulling a heart along in his little cart, he's called Delivering My Heart to You.  I masked off the heart so it didn't show on my stamped image, and then stamped the pumpkins into the cart, which came from a WOJ Autumn Kit.
Delivering my heart to you
So, not very frightening, but nontheless getting his pumpkins ready for the spookiest night of the year!

My papers are Memory Box, Blackbird, the twigs are cut with a couple of Tim Holtz dies, and the sentiment is Cat's Life Press.  My pumpkin in the tree is a Martha Stewart punch.  I love the little wooden mushrooms which I've coloured up with some Distress Ink, I've added a couple of skeleton leaves, some spooky netting and that was me done!

Whiff of Joy are sponsoring this challenge to the tune of 15% off their next order for the lucky winner of the challenge!!
