Cropped Event 123 stamping Challenge

Hi fellow crafters:) So today is the day the Cropped Event Starts! So excited:) I have had my projects ready for awhile now, but haven't gotten the chance to post them until now:)lol.

If you go to their website, I think you can still purchase tickets to the invite. The Mystery Boxes are sold out but if you purchase an event ticket, you can take part in all the fun challenges and win some fabulous prizes. 

Here's my card for the first challenge. Challenge #1 123 Stamp challenge: 

The challenge was to watch "My 123 Stamp DVD" and create a card that is similar in style and technique to the "Sunset Card." For my card I used Megan's "Sunset Card" for inspiration but also used the "Stamp Kissing" technique with my ghosts. As you can see I turned my card into a Halloween card.  I used My Creative Time Treats For My Sweet Stamp Set for the ghosts and the bats. For the the witch I used Peachy Keen's September 2012 Monthly Release. For the city I used Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Collection "City Central." To create the background I used a lot of Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Black Soot, Dusty Concord, Dried Marigold, Mild Lavender, Shabby Shutters, Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Stormy Sky, Iced Spruce, and Weathered Wood. 

Inside of my card sentiment 
For the inside of my card I used a stamp that I got last year from Michael's dollar bin. 

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog and leave me a comment:) 

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hugs!
