Circles Challenge at LTC

Good morning friends
Today is another challenge filled day over at Love to Crop.  I just love Amy and her blog challenges...  Have you seen some of her explosion boxes?  WOW.  She is so gifted and I am always honored when she wants ME to guest design.  Well, every other Friday she hosts a challenge on her blog and this week it's all about "CIRCLES".  Easy, right?  So here is my take on the challenge and I hope you like it, cuz this was probably the easiest card to create.
I started with my circle Halloween paper as my background
and punched 3 circles each in black and orange.  I inked around
the edges of the orange circles in black and using my alphabet
stamps I embossed the words BOO with gold embossing powder.
I used my glitter gel pen and traced around the black circles
then pop dotted the orange circles on top of the black ones.
I added my "faux" bakers twine that I colored both
in orange and black and tied a knot in the middle.
Then I added a few rhinestones to keep with the circles 
challenge  that I colored orange with my bic markers. 
I just love making all my own embellishments...easier on the pocket book
Lastly I added one of my Creative Paperclay® ghosts (you can see my tutorial on it here)

See, super easy and quick!!!
Now go and create a project using "CIRCLES" and head on over to LTC and enter Amy's challenge.  I believe the challenge is open until November 3rd, but check out her blog for more details, plus she also has some blog candy you could win for entering.
