Well I have to say what a contrast in weather we are having at the moment, we have woken this morning to grey skies and rain.  Such a shame after the lovely weather we have been having lately, but that's spring for

Today I would like to share with you another card I have made following on with my "Halloween" theme.  I have used another of the Blue Butterfly Digi stamps, "Candra Goth Girl" which is available from Becs store here.  They are so easy to colour I just love them and hopefully you all took advantage of the little sale that Bec had over the last few days and stocked up on all your favourites.

Here is my card, I have used lots of die cuts and crystal embellishments, even managed to spray some white flowers as I wanted to use some black roses, haha think I got more on me than the flowers.

I have chosen to do something different this time and have had a go at doing a twisted easel card.  Well have to so say they are so easy and lots of fun so will definitely be doing that one again.  There are lots of wonderful tutorials out there to follow but quite liked this one as it is easy to follow and has great pictures.
