Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges #355 - Lots of Layers

Hello sweet friends and followers!
Happy "nearly" Halloween!
It's the last Saturday of October (how does that happen so fast?!)
and time for a new weekly theme at 
Larisa is our krafty hostess and she wants to see us
use "Lots of Layers".  Ohhhh I LOVE this theme!

If your style is usually a CAS or One layer this could be a
fun challenge for you to stretch yourself. Or... if you
already love layers (as I do) this is right up your crafty alley ;o).   

I choose to make a Halloween card because I still needed two
more cards for a couple special people  (AND I STILL need
to get them mailed - gulp)! I often wonder how it is that I
make so many cards over the course of a year and yet am often
late getting them sent out to my family and friends. 
Do you do that too?  It's kind of embarrassing really :o/'s my lots of layers halloween card
using the super sweet (and not too spooky) stamp
set called "HAPPY OWL-OWEEN"
I used my favorite paper line of Doodlebug design 
and several die cuts and punches for my layers.  

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenges - Anything Goes
My Time to Craft Challenges #332 - Autumnal Colors or Halloween
If You Give a Crafter a Cookie Challenges #55 (photo inspiration)
The Alphabet Challenge Blog - R is for Recipe (use at least 3 from grid)
I used sentiment, stamp, dies and punches for my 3

Crafty Catz Challenges #344 - Anything Goes w/twist of using die cuts or a punch
Jo's Scrap Shack FFC#162 Color Challenge - Use Orange, Purple and Green
Fab N Funky Challenges #324 - Halloween
The Crafty Addicts Challenges #27 - A.G. with Halloween Colors

I hope that you will decide to play along with us this week!
  We LOVE to see your creations so be sure to submit them 
so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to spend 
in the Kraftin' Kimmie Store! 

And OH MY GOSH... I don't want to forget to tell you about 
the NEW Surprise Krafty Guest Kit! 
Details are on a 'pinned' post on the KKS Friends FB page.
Please go check it out!  You'll be so glad you did! 

Thanks so much for visiting me today!
