A Spoonful of Sugar ~ Boo!

There is a great challenge over on A Spoonful of Sugar this week, it is to have a secret message on your card.
Do check out the challenge, there is fabulous blog candy on offer and the rest of the design team have come up with some fantastic ideas!
I thought my Halloween stamps would be good for the challenge this week and used this fabulous Sugar Nellie spooky character!

And so onto my secret message.....
Just look at this fab wood look paper, I only had to add score lines and some ink! I have had it ages but think it came from the Paper Mill Shop.
Supplies~ Tools ~ Scorpal
DP ~ Laura Ashley
Stamp ~ Sugar Nellie 'Halloween'
Embellishments ~ Prima flower and leaf, spacers from Jeneca Beads, Dovecraft brads, Kaiser Rub-on.

I see you've given up on summer and moved into autumn with a fabby Halloween card! and you reminded me I have some papers like that in all different colours of wood but never know what to do with them. I love how you added score lines and ink to make it look like planks - I'll copy that! annie x
