Swarm and Caardvarks Challenges

So here I am, back at home from my scrapping weekend in SLC. It was great to get away for a couple of days and get a few projects done (not sure my mojo is all the way back because I wasn't too inspired to create a whole lot). I have some projects to share with you throughout the week and this first one is from our Saturday Swarm challenge, which was to create anything using two of the Halloween Imaginesence papers and stamp as well as the purple ribbon and fiber that was provided. We could use anything else we wanted to and this is what I created. I use two of the sketches by Heidi Van Laar at Caardvarks for these, too. The card is based on sketch #1 and the purse is based on sketch #2.

Cardstock and scallop edge punch: Stampin' Up!
Patterned paper and stamps: Imaginisce
Purse and tag were cut with my Cricut and Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More cart and the circle and scallop circle were cut with the Mini Monograms cart
Buttons: Sassafras
Black Pearls: Doodlebug
Ink: Staz On and Cat's Eye Fluid Chalk
Glitter: Stickles by Ranger

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend....I sure did!!
