Happy Halloween/ 2 Sketches 4 You

Hello and happy Thursday.  I got some more crafting time done today.  Along with laundry too.  Woohoo!  I haven't been doing as many challenges lately like I use to.  I have had this image sitting on my desk for a few weeks now along with the paper all picked out and everything.  When I saw the sketch at 2Sketches4 You I thought this fit perfectly. 
I know blue isn't your typical Halloween color but I thought it brought out the background in the image.
I used a pretty little gold button for the center and a couple of those leaves I am totally addicted to.

Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Rustic Cream
DP: Basic Grey & Making Memories
Image: from the internet
Seam Binding: Bluebird Lane Etsy
Leaves: Reccollections
Button: From stash


Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

Maybe not a halloween color but the blue is perfect for this card. It turned out gorgeous. I'm smitten with that centerpiece of your flower. It turned out a fabulous "vintage" halloween card.
Enjoy your day; It sounds familiar; cardmaking and laundry... :)
Hugs and XXX

Ugh laundry is so not fun is it? I have been doing everything but creating these days. This is utterly fantastic! I love that you had the image sitting on your desk a long with papers waiting for you. I do that as well!
