Hello and a good Saturday morning to you. Today is the big day, my brother’s wedding. I did the invitations and I’m officiating the ceremony today. It should be a lot of fun, a lot of may family is over from England. Wish me luck! πŸ™‚

Today’s post is for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have a sketch challenge…

I wanted to keep the card very clean and simple but still fun. The base of the card is More Mustard Card Stock. I used the Labels Collection Framelits Dies to cut out a piece of Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper for the background. The strip of Tangerine Tango across the lower half is stamped with spooky form the Wicked Cool Stamp Set in Basic Black. I stamped the cauldron from the Toxic Treats Stamp Set in Basic Black and punched it out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. The spider web and treats for boo are from the Mixed Medley (Host(ess)) Stamp Set from the 2012 Holiday Catalog. The web is stamped in Basic Black and punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. The boo is stamped in Tangerine Tango and punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. They are all adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the plaid of the Howlstooh & Scaringbone DSP and the font of the spooky! I hope that you enjoyed this weeks Create with Connie and Mary Challenge card. Thank you so much for checking in with me today and I hope your day is a great one!
