Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

Once again I was able to find a few minutes (more than just a few) to play with the new sketch at SplitCoastStampers. It was a pretty simple and fairly basic layout. There was not a lot of challenge to it other than finding a single stamp to fit in the center. Though I did give the "Lovely as a Tree" set a thought and add some other elements to it but I wanted to play with the Ghouls today!!! LOL

Aren't they just adorable??? The "Tableau of Terror" set is by Stampin' Up! The words on the card were not from the set. I just wanted "Happy Halloween" on the card but couldn't find one to fit in the oval punch area so I went on the computer and typed in the words. I didn't have a creepy font so I had to go online to find one. This one was called "bloody." Fits the wording, doesn't it??? It's amazing all the free fonts out there!!

I colored in the characters with colored pencil and sponged the edges. The decorative paper is by K and Company. I had gotten it last year at Michaels. And it's NOT that I was hoarding it, I wasn't. I only used a few sheets from the pack and Halloween was over!! SO I just kept it with the other decorative papers and figured I'd be using it again and here you have it!!! And guess what? There's still a LOT more paper left!!! I did buy one sheet of Halloween paper this year. I HAD to. I was at Archivers (I had to use my coupon!!!) and I walked in the die cut room. I saw this cute box but you couldn't bring in your own paper. You had to purchase paper at the store and then you can cut anything you want using that paper. Well, that box was just TOO cute to pass up so I walked out of that room and found a cute piece of decorative paper and bought it. I went back in that room and cut out the box. It's still in the bag. I have not had time to play with it but I will this weekend!!

Anyway, back to the card. I used my BigKick and a Halloween die cut that I have had for a few years. I cut out a spider and a bat. The card needed something in that left open area and those few elements seemed to do the trick!!

It was a VERY fun card and easy to do. The coloring took the most time.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
