Bloggers challenge #68

This week for our blogger's challenge we were given an inspiration piece. Here is the picture. I really like this! Since I obviously have Halloween on the brain, I decided to use these cute skulls from the Ghostly Greetings DSP at Stampin' Up! The squares are all cut to 1-1/4", adhered to a black piece of cardstock and then to a white card base measuring 5" square. You can't really see the white on this picture, but....it is there! I think it turned out very cool and is the perfect birthday card for my brother! It goes great with the book I got him called Releasing your Inner Pirate. LOL I think he is a wanna be pirate. I hope the red ribbon doesn't make it too feminine....maybe he'll think it looks like blood. ;o)
Have a great weekend! Be sure to check back tomorrow to see the Halloween scrap layout I did of my sister....she is such a witch! ;o)

What a fun card...and a perfect card for a guy! I'm sure he will love it. I'm afraid that I'm not going to get all of my Halloween designer paper used for Halloween. Goog thing some of it is generic so I can use it at other times as well.

Awesome card.

Arrrh: Pretty darn spiffy if you ask me and I think it's a perfect masculine card. Looks like we were thinking along the same lines this week!

Oooh! That is cute! Great card for a guy...I think the red ribbon is fine, not too girly! :) And I had to laugh at your comment on the BC message boards about laundry...I have a feeling not much housework/work gets done on Fridays while we're all blog-hopping! :)
