Fusion: Pastel Halloween





Fusion's fearless leader Karren Johnson comes up with amazing inspiration photos but I think she has totally outdone herself this week!  How could I pass up the chance to make pink bats, green stars and purple pumpkins?!?!?  An opportunity like that only happens once in a blue moon......

I wonder what color Miss E is going to paint her pumpkin??




I used both the sketch and the photo this week at Fusion!  Such fun.....join us!

Your pink bats, blue moon and purple pumpkin are absolutely beautiful, Linda! Not to mention your green stars and sparkly sequins, too...WOW! The perfect inspiration for combining the sketch and photo...Love this card!

Linda I LOVED this card even before I noticed it was YOU! How stinkin' cute is that color combo. So different for Halloween and I LOVE it! I'm betting Ms. E takes after her gramma and does it in non-Halloween color.... of her choice of course. Hugs.

Never have I seen such an eclectic color combo for a Halloween card. You totally rocked the sketch and the inspiration!!

Karren said...

Once in a blue moon - I see what you did there :) . Gorgeous, gorgeous card and such a fun take on the challenge. Glad you liked the inspiration photo - it's always a guessing game if people are going to like them or not.

These pastel colors make that pumpkin look so bright and cheerful! I love how you combined spooky elements in pretty pastel colors!

I love the pumpkin, but don't recognize it from the Stampin Up family, but knowing me I've just overlooked it. What is the name of the thinlits.

Linda Callahan said...

The pumpkin is from the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits set that coordinated with last year’s Pick a Pumpkin stamp set.
