pretty spooky…

Earlier this year, I was given a fun challenge by one of the editors at Creating Keepsakes.  She sent me a “pretty” product, and challenged me to make it “spooky.”  I love a challenge, so of course, I accepted!

Here’s the product she sent to me (Bold Flowers by Fiskars):


and here’s what I created with it:
