Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge – Sketch

We have a fabulous sketch for you to try over on Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge this week!  The other Challenge Team Members have some fabulous cards, so make sure to check them out over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Use your creativity and play along with us…add your card to InLinkz over on Create and use CCMC108 in your post or gallery upload!



For my card, I used a new set that I SWORE I wasn't going to buy…I didn't NEED any more Halloween sets.  But, you know…Stampin' Up! always comes out with a Halloween set that I just HAVE to get!  I love them!



The set is called Wicked Cool…and I ADORE these witch shoes!  That image and the Spooky greeting sold me on this set!  I first stamped the shows with Basic Black Classic Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I added a strip of the dotted Designer paper from the Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Paper package (it has black flocking on some of the pieces!)  Then I punched with the 1 3/4 circle punch.  I added the circle to the NEW 2 3/8 Scallop Circle…love it…from Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I used more of the Wicked Fun Designer Paper with the Spooky pattern layered onto Basic Black cardstock.  I ran the Old Olive cardstock thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder for some texture in the background.  Along the left side, I used the Black Striped 1 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon, secured it in the back of the Old Olive, then used some Linen Thread to tie a bow on the front for a little detail!

I liked this card so well that in addition to being my challenge card for Create with Connie and Mary, it is also one of my swap cards at Convention for the Control Freaks!  I know there are some Freaks who love Halloween as much as I do!  Again, check out the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team to see what they did with this sketch this week!

I love this card.  I'm not usually a Halloween card gal, but this is adorable.  I can see why you couldn't pass up the set.

Connie, I wasn't going to buy any more Halloween sets  !!!!  This  would be great for my class for Halloween cards.  I don't really like that Holiday, but many love it so guess I have to oblige !!  So glad I saw yours to inspire me.  TFS.
