Would you like to hear a story?

This month, the underlying (but optional) theme at
Gingersnap Creations has been, and suitably so for
October, Edgar Allen Poe. So, when choosing a subject
for this week's Color Challenge, it had to be you-know-
who, right?


Would you like to hear a story?
(Click image to enlarge it.)

The text in the background, part of it is a copy of a
piece of The Raven in Poe's own hand, and the other is
a bit from The Tell Tale Heart.
There is a fabulous array of Poe and Halloween inspired
artwork already posted in the last few challenges, as
well as all the great design team and visiting artist
pieces. Stop by for a little inspiration, and link up
your own art for a chance at some sweet treats--no trick!

:)
PS--There is still time to enter my own treats giveaway,
HERE, and you can even link up your own giveaway, too!
