SFF 092311

Good Friday morning everyone! I am so happy that it is finally Friday!! My son thought it was a fast week and I am thankful for that. But for me, it was a long one! And today we will be heading out of town for two soccer games. It will be nice to get away! The Sketch Frenzy Friday team has another great sketch challenge! This week's sketch is brought to us by Maria Vanderform. Take a look!
Isn't it great?!! Here is what I created with it:

I knew I wanted to go in a Halloween direction. I love Halloween! I don't do anything special for it but it is so fun to see the kids get so excited about dressing up and getting candy! I often wonder how long Nick will continue to get excited about dressing up and going out trick-or-treating. Anyway, I started with a Pumpkin Pie card base. I cut a piece of Basic Black and a piece of Lucky Limeade designer paper and glued them together. Then I wrapped a piece of Basic Black striped grosgrain around that before adhering it to the card. then I took a piece of Basic Black taffeta ribbon and tied it around the striped ribbon leaving the tails exposed. For the focal point I stamped the girl from the Greeting Card Kids set in black StazOn on a piece of Confetti Cream card stock that was punched with the 2 1/2" circle punch. Then I watercolored her with coordinating colors and my aqua painter. The circle is popped up over the ribbon. Then I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Basic Black and added three rhinestones. 

I do hope that you will find some time to play along with us! We always love to see what you come up with! But before you get to creating, be sure to click 'here' to see what Jennifer came up with.
