Good morining! I hope you are all doing well! I'm trying to decide if it is time to turn the heater on...we've been having beautiful fall weather but then getting really warm in the afternoons...but we all woke up today freezing...so fun!! I think today is a definate soup and cornbread day...maybe some spiced cider too! YEA!

As I was working on some projects, I came across this sketch from Caardvarks. It was from the Sktechfest they had last week. While I missed the opportunity to play along with the sktchfest, as it is over now, I thought I'd still like to play along with the great sketches! So, here is the sketch I used for my card.

I had a lot of fun with the sketch and am happy with the results. I did take a little creative liberty with the sketch and move the sentiment up a little...but that is the joy of a sketch!

So, I started with a pumpkin pie card base. I layered some basic black and some night and day paper onto my card base. I used my circle scissor cutter and made a basic black circle and attached it to the left side of my card and trimed the excess off.

I used my flower layers die and the Big Shot to create my flowers. Two of them are the Night and Day paper and then the harringbone one is actually fabric. I gave all my flowers their centers, a pumpkin brad, large black grommet, and pumpkin rhinestone brad; and then attached them to my card. The smallest flower is added with dimensionals.

For my sentiment, I used some retired SU halloween rubons. My large oval punch punched the pumpkin paper out, then I made a nice home for it with my scallop oval and black cardstock. I added the sentiment to the card with dimensionals also.

My last addition to the card was the white spider rubons...aren't the a great touch!? They are the same retired halloween rubons from SU.

I know just who this card will give a fun scare to this Halloween....I can't wait to get it in the mail! Thanks so much for stopping by! Make it a great one!

Totally charming and totally YOU! I love the combination of patterned paper and shapes. The different center on each flower is very cool. Hugs, Mary
