All Hallow's Eve


Psst...
So, I've been sitting on some pretty exciting news.
Perhaps it might have just taken time to register.

Ever heard of that company called My Mind's Eye?
And that wonderfully, super talented designer that they have by the name of Jen Allyson?
Her most recent lines include the likes of Stella & Rose,
Lost & Found and Lime Twist to name a few?

Well...I'm proud to announce that I'm a new Project Girl Creative Contributor over on her blog
and get to work with these fabulous products!

I have a feature over on The Project Girl on Ways to Use It-
Vintage Findings:All Hallow's Eve Digital Kit.
**yay! it is now up**

This card uses the spec sheet available with the digital kit.
I simply cropped the piece showing what patterns are available,
scored between each line, inked the lines and edges and added a few embellishments!
Perfect for this week's The Pink Elephant Challenge featuring scoring!


(Stay tuned, I have some pretty fun happenings on my blog for my birthday tomorrow!)

Supplies:
Cardstock: (Kraft) PTI
Patterned Paper: (Vintage Findings: All Hallow's Eve Digital Paper) Jen Allyson
Ink: (Walnut Stain Distress) Ranger
Embellishments: (Wood Button from the Lost and Found Collection) My Mind's Eye
Fiber: (Natural Burlap String) May Arts
