Fab Friday Sketch Challenge: Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015

Good morning!  I swear I blink my eyes and the week flies by, I really need it to slow down (I saw this week that we now have less than 100 days until Christmas, can you believe it??)  I decided to have a little Halloween fun today and made this card using the Fab Friday sketch challenge.   When I saw that doily in the sketch I knew it would be perfect to use the new Spider Web Doilies (I love these!)

I started with Tangelo Twist cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of designer series Paper from the Happy Hauntings Designer Series Paper Pack before adding that beautiful doily.  Next I added two pieces of ribbon for a fun accent, a piece of Into the Woods 3/8" Cotton Ribbon and Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon (I trimmed both sides of the Natural Ribbon and pulled some strings to distress the ribbon.

For the main stamped image I took a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut a large circle using the Big Shot and Circle Collection Framelits before stamping.  I used the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015 stamp set for the words a bat images (the font for the "wicked" is so fun!).  I used some Basic Gray ink and a sponge to sponge around the edge of the circle for a little extra fun.   I also added a little strip of rhinestones to accent the "night."

For the final touch I used the Sweet Hauntings stamp set to stamp the little poison bottle on Tangelo Twist cardstock and then cut it out with Paper Snips and attached the bottle and stamped images with dimensionals for added dimension.

This is a card that came together really quickly but due to all the little elements it is lots of fun and will really impress (you can keep it a secret how easy it was, haha!!)  I may have to use the layout and elements from this card to make some box labels I'm working on for Halloween teacher gifts (got to get a head start!!)
