Inspiration by Linda "Exotic Nights"

Hi all you wonderful crafters!!!  Today I am showing my inspirational card called "Exotic Nights"  It is by the very talented Ching-Chou Kuik Stamps.  You can purchase this stamp here: 

The challenge that she does is here: and you can come join in the challenge this month it is "Halloween/something spooky" 

If you enter with one of her stamps then you can get two chances to win or if you want to enter with another stamp you still get the chance to win the monthly prize.

This card almost went into the trash, let me explain, first of all it was laying on my desk (not completely colored yet an I was testing a pen to see if it would write and the image was partially covered so I didn't see it there.  I had 3 lines on the corner of the card.  So I thought Ok maybe I can still save it so I colored it and after I did the back ground with Pan Pastels you have to use a fixative to make it stay there.  So I grabbed what I thought was the hair spray I use and it turned out to be a sticky spray that I use on my cricut matt to reuse it.  So NOW I thought I am going to have to redo the whole thing.  I had taken out some gems earlier for another project and the film covering was laying there so I just layed it over the card and pressed it down and would you believe it stuck?  So I saved the card with that.  You can't see it in the film in the photo thank goodness but I love how she turned out.  The two bugs on here are cut from the piece of foil over the coffee cans to keep the coffee fresh.  I love the texture they have.  I used two of the tops and cut a bunch of stuff out.  Anyway I saved my card and love it and hope you do as well.

So come on down and play along with us.  We also have a challenge on our facebook page as well if you want to play along there too!
