FSS DT card Halloween in July!

I'm in card making mode today after getting all those goodies in the post this morning from Aries Crafts. I really wanted to play with ome of it but I had to make a card for Fred She said first as I haven't made a card yet this week, so I was having a look through the FSS images and it hit me, there is a gorgeous Halloween Emma image and Aries Crafts sent me some Halloween paper to play with so I just had to put them both together and do a Halloween card. A bit early I know but you can never be too organised, and when you see this little cutie you might want to get started early too. I followed one of the sketches from Stampin' for the Weekend so I am entering my card there. They have a choice of two sketches, but I picked the first one as the sponsor for the 2nd one is Cute Daisy May and since I am on their design team it would be a bit pointless entering to win images I can get anyway lol, but I might do that sketch too just for fun if I have time this week :)I think this is my favourite Emma so far and you get sentiments in the set too. I love this fun sentiment lol. In this set you also get the same image without the spots on her cat suit.
I personaly think this image with her one tooth showing is cute but Tracey has tried to cater for everyone and also added the same image but with her mouth closed. You also get the images in different sizes too, so again lots for you money. Tracey has also just added a coloured version of the Emma the mermaid image I used a while ago for people who like to just print out their images ready to use without any need for colouring. Great for when you need to make a quick card.
The spotty paper I have used is by The Paper Company Studio and is available at Aries Crafts and the other two were freebie downloads I got a while back, but can't remember where from.
I've punched my flowers from scraps of glossy black and shiney purple papers and the smallest ones are punched from the same spotty paper as before. I finished them off with some purple and black gems.

I have some new Hero Arts animal stamps to play with so got to go get inky!

Wow Lora you are certainly organized, getting a head start on your halloween cards, and it's a gorgeous emma too. I do love halloween cards but the Uk doesn't seem to really send them to people, but they are such fun to make, and you have done a marvelous job on Kimmi's sketch.
