Simply Betty Challenge #2 & The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #19

This week the team at Simply Betty want us to create a new Halloween colour combo, diverging from the traditional Black, Orange, Purple and Greens. Make a project, card or layout creating a new colour combo using anything but these colors.  Over at the Burtonesque Dolls it is to create a trick or treat burton style.  I feel as if I'm being watched.... BOO.

This is my attempt using Gigi, lots of red grey and a funny shade of brown glitter card.  I added some polka dot red ribbon and put some behind one of my polymer badges and the backing paper I made on the comp and printed out (actually should be black with eyes but my printer ran out of ink and printed grey streaks with eyes but I kinda liked it.  I added white stickles to the blacker parts to make them grey/sparkle:



Anyway here it is, as usual nothing spectacular but anywho got kids to collect, dinners to make and as an added bonus I am potty training my youngest and she is determine to mark her territory hehe (so glam being a mum).
