Halloween JJ October

Good morning everyone ....Mondays do come round so fast, I have been back at work a week already!!  As it's Monday it's time for our Make it Monday #l06 Linky party whooo!! Fabulous entries again last week over all have so much talent, I'm having a job keeping up!!    Not a happy chappy this week with my card, I think it's because I had to rush everything, didn't have much time for crafting....but check out my teamies this week as there cards are just fantastic!!
I have used JJ October  Isn't she fabulous, wish I could have done more with her, but haven't had a lot of time.... The photo's are also a bit pants this week.  The lovely lace looks a bit like a spiders web, it's two pieces joined together one the right side up and the other on top of it, it looks really good on the card, but doesn't show up too well on the photo. The gorgeous papers are from Donna at Bearly Mine Designs, it is a freebie that I got last year, isn't it lovely! The flower I made with a Magnolia Doohickey Die called Vintage Daises, from Dies to die for.  I used Black and red card and attached a black pearl brad to the centre. The dew drops look good too, I thought they could represent drops of that a bit goulish!!!
