Happy Halloween Cards!

I've done two cards for two different challenges, one is for A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge where the theme (until tomorrow) is Halloween, the other is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the brief is "Bump in the Night". As I only have two Halloweeny stamps, both from Penny Black, I used them on both cards. My imagination was zero, so there's not a huge difference between the two. I also didn't have any Halloween type paper so I found the paper on the web as a free download on a site called Papercrave.com. I really like the skulls, they're quite funky. There's not many embellishments on them, a bit ribbon and pumpkin brads. The two stamps are called "Bare Trees" and "In the Woods". I distressed the stamped images with Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot).



Incase you're interested, the sentiment on the french card reads "Cast a spell for Halloween". Thanks for looking x
