BC114 As The Crow Flies



It's FRIDAY...Doing the "Happy Dance"!!! - It's also time for the Blogger Challenge and this week our list mom gave us a sketch to follow. I wasn't sure how to interpret the middle portion but forged ahead with my take on the sketch.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and this year I may actually have a few cards to mail out. For this card I started with a new stamp I found at JoAnn's. It's from Inkadinkado Clear Mini Stamps. I just loved the look of it. I used my Labels 1 Nestabilitie Die and then with the card stock still in the die I sponged on Perfect Plum, Old Olive and Only Orange ink. Then I glued this down on some Old Olive cs and cut around it as I wanted a small border and the next size label die was to large. I distressed the edges with the Cutter Kit distressing tool from SU.
Next up I paired my image up with the SU Designer Paper, Cast-a-Spell. I added some Pumpkin Pie Striped ribbon, Plum Brads (non su), black thread and printed my sentiment on a Tag Nestabilitie Die. I also did some faux stitching and used a Black Spica Glitter pen to highlight the stitching. The 3 dots were done using Orange Peel Stickles.

Oh I almost forgot...Did you notice the smaller Crow on my focal panel? I found a cute Halloween set from Studio G that had that crow and couldn't believe how well it matched the one from Inkadinkado and for only $1 I just had to get it.

Be sure to stop by all the other BC members blogs and see what they've done with this sketch.
