Octopode Factory Challenge - Halloween in July

Wow, it's still sunny and hot! Something we are definitely not used to in Scotland!! Lots of red lobster like people walking about the town today - I'm peeling so quite so red now! hahaha

Its been a great week for me, my favourite band played an acoustic set in Glasgow last night and my sister, best friend and myself all went along. They played an astounding set and like proper groupies, we hung about afterwards for autographs! I've been a fan of Terrorvision for nearly 20 years and finally got a photo with the lead singer last night - my inner 14year old was jumping for joy, she had to be shut up with an ice cream at mcdonalds afterward! Just for the sheer heck of it - here's the photo!

Me grinning like a loony with Tony Wright of Terrorvision!
Anyway, onto the real reason for today's post - its Halloween in July over at the Octopode Factory and I'm jumping in at the last minute with this card using Lily's Sally image from the Nightmare Before Christmas. The patterned papers are free from Pixel Scrappers - they should be red but there was a problem with my printer ink so they came out orange - perfect for this card! I've matter and layered with orange and black pearlescent papers, added a hand written sentiment, seam binding ribbon and black sticky pearls.

The image is coloured with promarkers and available at the Octopode Factory Etsy shop.
