Good morning! What a fabulous weekend. We got back from our cruise yesterday and had so much fun, it was great to rest and relax and just enjoy time as a family. We love Disney cruises and would highly recommend it. I have lots of pictures and adventures to share but we have to get back into the routine. Today I'm sharing my card for this weeks Fab Friday sketch challenge. This was a nice simple challenge so it really gives you some creative flexibility. I have Halloween on my mind this week so I decided to use this challenge to make a fun-filled Halloween card. The cardbase is Pumpkin Pie and I added a piece of Witches Brew Designer series paper. For three of the four elements I used the Label Bracket Punch to punch out three different patterns from the same package of DSP. I added different stamped images from the Halloween Hello stamp set as fun elements on each of the panels. The fourth panel uses the Tags 4 You stamp set and was punched out with the same punch, attached with dimensionals and I added rhinestones for accents.
The final touch was to add a strip along the bottom so I took a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the candy corn image from the Halloween Hello stamp set and colored it in with Pumpkin Pie and Summer Starfruit. The last touch was to add a piece of Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon.
This card is so fun and festive, it would sure to make anyone get into the Halloween spirit. I love to send Halloween cards to friends and family since it's not a huge card sending occasion so it's more of a surprise. You should give it a try and brighten someones day when they receive a special card you stamped, wrote in, and mailed (instant happiness for you and the receiver).
