{DT Project Lady Anne's Paper Crafts: Challenge #3 - Friday Sentiments}

Our theme for the next monthly Challenge over at Lady Anne's Paper Crafts' Monthly Friday Sentiments Challenge is Halloween with a Die Cuts Twit (but always have a sentiment).  How much easier can you get.  So I really hope you will play along.

We don't seriously celebrate Halloween here in South Africa, but fortunately being on design teams solved my problem of getting hold of applicable Halloween images.  The cute little Halloween Flight digi is from QKR and you can find her here  The sentiment is from Eureka Stamps and you can find it here.  I have coloured the images with H2O's.

Its the first time that I tried my hand at pinwheels.  I used 2" and 3" scalloped square punch to create the pinwheels with.  I kind of fancy the little pinwheels s they give a fun element to the card. 

Looking forward to seeing you play along over at Lady Anne's Friday Sentiment Challenge #3.
