You have the until November 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our October challenge is Black, White and Glam

October always has a bit of glamour and intrigue to it. A stroll through the craft store this time of year brings visions of glitzy pumpkins, gilded candelabras and rhinestones galore. So this month we’re challenging you to to get glamorous with black, white and metallics. Use the inspiration graphic or go off on your own tangent, just share a little bit of glam with us!

How fun is this challenge!  I need a birthday card for my sister whose birthday is on October 30 and know she won’t mind the Halloween Inspired colours with all the sparkle and glam!  I hunted around the studio for things that were “blingy” and came up with some glitter cardstock (the banner), silver glitter (the pumpkins, and some silver sequins.  Get your sunglasses out!
