Dilly Beans Halloween!

Its been a few weeks since I have made a card purely for the sake of fun! So today I was sitting looking at a Dilly Beans image that I had coloured weeks ago that was pinned up in front of me and decided to put it to good use and enter this week's Dilly Beans Challenge! The theme this week is 'Ribbons' and I have used a few on here. I added a Halloween hair bow from PoundWorld to the girl's hair in place of her 'skull' bow. I also added some seam binding and orange polkadot ribbon to the left of the card along with some flowers and pins - kinda my signature at the moment!

I have coloured the image with Promarkers and used designer papers from Echo Park and Little Yellow Bicycle for the background. The punched edge is from an X-Cut edge punch.

As well as entering into the Dilly Beans challenge I will also be entering the following -
