Mysterious Roses & Skulls ~ The Paper Shelter

Hey All! I had to use Mysterious Roses & Skulls for this week's The Paper Shelter challenge over on their blog. This is their 400th challenge so I had to make sure that I joined in the celebration.  Only I was a day late I think :( I thought I had until Tuesday (today) to play but I was wrong. But I am going to show you what I made anyway.
The theme of the challenge is celebration cards. I am making mine in the celebration of Halloween. When I saw the beautiful Mysterious Roses & Skulls I knew exactly what I was going to do!

Then after coloring her eyes green it made me think of one of those beautifully spooky photos on the mansion walls in a scooby doo cartoon. Yes, I do love scooby-doo! That is when I decided to use the "I'm Under Your Spell" sentiment to finish off the card.

I cut a bit of the U off under but that is okay I am not giving this baby away! I will be keeping her for sure!  Here is a better look at the colors I used for her eyes.

I went completely vintage with this card with pinks and vanilla colors in my paper and my cardstock. I used my scissors to rough up the edges.  I also used a bit of Walnut Stained Distress Oxide Ink to give the paper that vintage look. I also did the same thing on the lace that I put on the card. Although with this photo you can't see a lot of the walnut stain.

I also used some of the Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink on the roses that I added as well.

The Copic markers I used are:
E40, 41, 43, 44, 47
Y11, YG01, 05
