Anything Goes at Your Scrapbook Place

The month of October is filled with changes in color, texture, temperature and attitude. I always get a little excited when October bursts upon us. The leaves are styling their show stopper colors, dropping a crunchy,  intoxicating path on which to walk. The wind is crisp, promising sunshine but warning us to keep that sweater close by. After the sleepy heat of August and September, I welcome the season of Fall with open arms.
Today I created a Halloween card to celebrate the Muse who hovers over my shoulder with so many ideas I can't keep up with her. I used a digi image from Bugaboo Stamps, the guest sponsor at Your Scrapbook Place. It's called Cupcake Skelekins. There's a whole line of cute little Skelekins at the Bugaboo Store, along with zillions of cute, sassy and whimsical images.
Since the patterned paper I used for the background is so busy, I cut a circle out of cardstock and doodled around my Skelekin to make her pop. Everything I used for my card is from my stash of leftovers. I have enough stash to create for the rest of the year without buying anything except adhesives (but that's no fun, is it?)
The challenge is Anything Goes and crafters have a whole month to create and link up their projects in order to have a chance to win a gift certificate to Bugaboo Stamps Store. Good luck and happy crafting!
