Candy corn!

For my JUGS post, click HERE :)

At the risk of sounding like a curmudgeon, I'm going to say I'm not really a Halloween person. I mean, I like it well enough and I love seeing kids decked out in their costumes, but as for dressing up myself... meh.  I used to love it as a kid and even into my early twenties; not so much anymore. I think if we had children I would really love it all over again, but until that day, I will remain "meh" about Halloween :)
I do love seeing all the Halloween projects made by all my fellow bloggers though! There's some amazingly talented people out there. So much talent, in fact, I was inspired to give Halloween another shot :) 
I made a card for the lovely Annabelle Sketch Challenge using this week's fantastic Curtain Call colors.

Here's a close up...

I used Clear and Simple Spooky Sweets for the candy corn and sentiments. I colored the candies with Copics, cut too out and popped them up for dimension. On closer inspection of my candy corn I can see the one on the left is mildly askew - Oops :) I did use grey and black - the grey is the card base and mat for the orange - it looks a bit dark in the photo so I thought I'd mention it :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Delightful card, Andrea! I'm not a Halloween person either, especially that we don't celebrate it in Poland, and I only got to know it better when I moved to Oz... it must be heaps of fun for kids none the less :)
Thank you for playing with our sketch!! xxx
