Halloween cards . . . but Not?

This cute little rockin' bear was created for the Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential challenge blog. He is from the Rockin Out C.C. Designs stamp set, and i thought what little boy doesn't want to be a rock star at least one halloween in his life, right?! The DP is called Witch's Brew from Reminisce, and I tried to keep with the circle theme going on in the paper.

If you are interested in playing along The Challenge is called Halloween, but NOT!You will need to make a creation with a Halloween theme using NO Halloween images! Get creative and think of using Halloween colors and any images you can "turn into" something for Halloween!

To get into the mood to create a Halloween creation prior to the card, I grabbed some halloween rub ons, my Martha Stewart fence punch, and some other goodies that my friend, Deb C, sent to me last year with some pretty ribbon and web like orange wide ribbon (I cut off in the photo) and created this fun tag. Now I have to get a gift together for someone for Halloween to be able to add this to it. :) lol

Thanks for stoppin' by, and please let me know what you think.
Hugs,

Great spin on this challenge, Kelly! One of our DDs is going as a rocker this year, but I think it was mostly for the pink wig ;).

Fun DPs and the tickets are the perfect accent. Love that tag, too!!
