First Bite

Usually when doggies bite it's not a good thing but when it's a vampire doggie on a card it's just dang cute.  This vamp is a digi image "First Bite" is from Shirley's 2 Girls where you can find lots of Halloween images.  And since they're digital you don't have to worry that you won't get them in time to use them for this Halloween.  They'll be in your e-mailbox in two shakes of a vampire doggie's tail.  You can get a start on your cards by making one for this week's S2G challenge.  The girls have given you a sketch and put the twist of "black and white" on it.  A little birdie (Georgia, I'd never rat you out) told me you can add a little color.  Thank goodness because there's a little bit of the inside of the doggie's cape showing and we all know that no self respecting vampire would own a cape that didn't have a red lining and I just have to make sure you see that it's red. 

Since you gotta get a little creepy when you're making Halloween cards I decided to make the circle element on the card a spider's web. I like to place charms on my card, for this card I took a bee charm and wrapped it up in black and white twine in the hopes of making it look like ithe bee was trapped in the web by a spider. The dp is a spider web, it's cut out with inverted circle scallops Nestibilities to look like a web.

This card was made on a black card stock base.  If you use a dark colored base you should take the time to finish the inside off with a lighter piece of card stock.   For this one I used an EK Success bat punch on the bottom, looks cute and goes with the bats in the image.
If you need some more inspiration hop over to the Shirley's 2 Girls challenge blog, the rest of the design team has been busy brewing up Halloween fun for you.  Don't forget to link up your project on the challenge page, you could win a S2G digi image.
