Cards...From Elegant To Spooky

Happy Saturday!  We are experiencing some fabulous weather here in Northern Ohio.  Believe me we are taking advantage of these gorgeous days because they will soon come to a close.  Thursday hubby and I went to the apple orchard to get some fresh....really fresh apples...not those supermarket ones that says they are fresh.  The air was crisp and the apples  from the tree were fresh and crisp too.  The leaves are beginning to turn color and it made me realize that autumn is here, which is the reason several of my cards have an autumn feel. 

The first card I made is very elegant.  I just love white on white with a splash of color.  I stamped the music image as my background and embossed it with pearl embossing powder, then stamped my sentiment with crimson (I saw leaves turning crimson), then embossed it with pearl embossing powder to make it more subtle.  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread.  (Light of the World collection)
It fits the challenge for
Our Daily Bread   which is to use and all white card with a splash of color
Paper Pretties   Pearls, rhinestones or glitter dots

For my next card I used a digi image from Elizabeth O. Dulemba.. Just too cute to not use on something.
I colored it with my copic markers.  Using  BV02, BV08, C1, E25, YG23, Y08.. Those spooky erie colors were achieved without any blacks or oranges... LOL
It fits the following challenges:

Paper Cutz black or orange... Honest there is no black or orange in my colors. 
Delightful Sketches   Pumpkins somewhere in your card
Stamp Challenges   Use a digi image
Copic Creations  shading in or around your image.  I shaded in both areas
The Secret Crafter  Anything Goes
