The Dark Side...........


.

It's dark..........it's raining......the furnace is running.........oh yes the Northeast is headed to the dark side for the next few months.  So I went with the darkness when I put together this card for the Paper Players' monochromatic challenge.  The Mojo Monday sketch worked perfectly and now I am off to turn on a light.  There's a quilt, an easy chair and a brand new novel calling my name.........it's not all bad........

Be still my beating heart--this is gothic elegance. I LOVE it! Love the mix of patterned papers and the spare elegance of the candelabra & spider web with just a touch of bling. GORGEOUS! So glad you could join us at The Paper Players :-)!

Linda, I like your dark side:) This is really a beautiful card. So what new novel is calling your name?

Library Barb said...

"and a brand new novel calling my name" Ah, the perks of working in a library; dreary inspiration gathered in the basement and shiny new books from the processing room. :)

Oh Linda, this is the most elegantly, spooky card I have ever seen. I love the added lace, too!!! The 'haunted' looks like it was embossed. I just love this. My 'kids' would love to nap on top of that beautiful quilt of yours... I've taught them to help turn pages... Hugs, Carla
