I have another card for you today. I think this is probably a record for consecutive posts for me. :) This card is based on the sketch below from Card Patterns. You still have time to play along until Friday. I decided to make a Halloween card since I haven't made one yet and the holiday is fast approaching. I really like Halloween stamps and I tend to buy a few, so last year I made the decision that I needed to send out Halloween cards to in order to validate my purchase. I think it's working out, well at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Back to the card...I chose the pumkin basket stamp by A Muse and filled it with "candy", which is actually twinkle stickers, and then colored it with my trusty Copic markers. I used the Lacey Circle die from Nestabilities to make the circle and then cut it in half. I adhered the green polka dot patterned paper on the left side of the card and at the seam adhered some American Crafts black and white polka dot satin ribbon, which I am in love with. I have a ton of American Crafts ribbon and this one is one of my faves! This sketch was a little difficult for me, I'm not going to lie, but I like how the card turned out in the end. I never would have put these things together on my own, but that's what I like about doing challenges and sketches. It makes me think and do things I wouldn't normally do. I challenge you to do a sketch or a challenge, you just may be surprised with the outcome. Happy crafting!
