CCMC 168 – Out on a Limb

Oh, over on Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge, we have a FUN sketch for everyone to try!  Quick and easy one, too!  Make sure to check out what Challenge Team has done with it over on Create with Connie and Mary!



And here is my card.  I found one of these "starts" on my desk…you know…a partially finished piece.  I had the circle medallion left over from the Control Freaks swaps I made.  I thought it would be perfect for this sketch.  See, my focal element is round…it is OK to change out the rectangle we show to something else!  Our sketch is a start for you to get creative!



I love this kitty and her tail hanging over the branch!  I stamped the branch first in Basic Gray, then the kitty with Basic Black and colored her eyes with Old Olive.  The moon was done in Basic Black and colored with a So Saffron marker.  I punched out the Whisper White with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch and layered on the Perfect Pennants Die.  That was layered in a 3" circle of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I used three patterns in the Frightful Sights Designer Paper and cut them into the strips for the background of Old Olive cardstock.  I layered it on the base of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I stamped Spooky from Spooky Bingo Bits in Basic Black under the focal element.  I added a "Mary bow" to the side with a Pumpkin Glimmer Brad in the center.  Finally, I used three 1/4" Circles along the side and across the top cut from the Silver Glimmer Paper…LOVE the sparkle!


Again, make sure you check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this sketch…as usual, we have LOTS of variety!
