I made this card on my crafty weekend away with friends. We had such a giggle over this one! Oh, but I must say that this card is for a VERY good friend who has his birthday just before Halloween! I covered the grim reaper’s scythe with a birthday flag made using the Lil’ Inker Designs die!

I used Chupa’s sketchbook Saturdays challenge for the layout, although I simplified it a bit to fit a male recipient. Here’s the sketch

I have to thank my friend Michelle for helping with this card – I was having terrible trouble with my copics bleeding over the edge of the image – my grey copics are quite juicy and new. So Michelle gave me one of her images which she’d heat embossed – result! The raised embossed edge helped to keep those juicy copics in check!

I’m going to email this one over to Paige at Create – the challenge this week is for these little toothpick type flags. Except my toothpick is a scythe handle!
