Tales of the Unexpected

I'm a bit late posting this I know. Things happening at home that needed my attention more. Better late than never though.
This week's challenge over at Delicious Doodles is as my title suggests "Tales of the Unexpected".
Make something that has a bit of a twist, as Terri suggests "You could make something cute into something horrid, or make an exploding box or have a hidden item somewhere on your make. You could even do something that is totally your normal style!!"
Well, the other ladies on the DT have all worked their magic and produced some gorgeous pieces. Well worth a look.
My card looks ordinary enough, doesn't it!
The patterned paper is papermania. The main part has been punched to co-ordinate with the black embossed vellum.

The image is "In the Pumpkin Patch" coloured with promarkers, cut out and attached to embossed orange cs then onto more paper from the same papermania range.

All then attached to plain orange paper then to black cs base.

The image panel hides

Evil Carnival Clown
and the "Happy Helloween" sentiment in a double slider card accessed by that little pumpkin. Again, coloured with promarkers with a healthy dosing of distress ink.

Don't forget to go look at the other DT blogs and marvel at theit work.

I am entering this into a couple of challenges
Art Impressions - Hallowe'en
