Luna Bitterfrost 'Happy Haunting'


I'm getting a late start today!  We went to a surprise 40th birthday party for a close friend of ours last night and had a blast!!!  They rented a motel suite at a waterpark and we ate and had lots of fun swimming!  I was too chicken to go on the big waterslide since last time I did so I felt like I was drowning so we went on the lazy river and kiddie water slide!

As for today's card, the image I used is the Luna Bitterfrost 'Happy Haunting' digital freebie from Pollycraft! The layout is this week's sketch challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

For the image I used my new COPIC X-press It Blending Card. I like how smooth the cardstock is but if you blow up the image and look really close at it there are little dots all over the paper. Not sure if this is how it is supposed to be or just a bad sheet of paper so I will try more of it and see what I find.

Hope you have a great day!
