AYSI237 Sketch x Two

Happy Friday, peeps!  As You See It has a fun new sketch for their challenge this week:

I hemmed and hawed with this sketch; nothing seemed to be working, and I finally gave in and did a Halloween card, as I still need to send some out!  I actually made two cards, I will share that one later in the post!  So here we go with my busy Halloween card:

I discovered some fun Halloween papers I forgot I had (you never do that, right?) and used them on the front of my card!  (I think that probably contributes to the busy-ness feel to it, though!)  Anyway, I persevered, cutting an orange glimmer paper starry wreath, punched out a couple of bats and a green glimmer paper spider, and added a fun jack-o-lantern and some stars:

My sentiment is an old SU die, cut from black glimmer paper:

And I stamped a fun sentiment on the inside in Memento Black and Pumpkin Pie:

I think I know just to whom this card is going!  And I am also entering this in the Double D challenge for October, as well as the TGIF Halloween challenge!  

For my next card, I chose to use the colors from The Spot challenge, because I find Rich Razzleberry a challenge to use, and I wanted to challenge myself, LOL!

So here we go:

I wanted to get some use of out my Stitched Leaves dies again, so after getting my layers situated, I diecut three leaves from the challenge colors and adhered them to a Brushed Bronze "wreath", backed with some Rich Razzleberry DSP:

I added a copper ribbon bow, and after stamping my sentiment from So Sentimental, embossed each of the triangular panels with one of the Wrapped in Texture embossing folders, then added some faceted gems for fun: 

I also added a narrow strip of the metallic cardstock to the diagonal panel...I like the effect it gives!  

Now, what will you create with our sketch?  As you can see, any holiday or occasion would work well with this fun sketch...share it with us at As You See It...can't wait to see what you come up with!

LeAnne you persevered, and I love them both! The fun 'words of Halloween' paper caught my eye right away - why haven't I done one for Halloween yet!

I love both of these LeAnne - and think that part of the charm of the Halloween one is its busy-ness! Great job with the Razzleberry on the second one; this is a colour i don't often use either come to think of it!

Heather Cooper said...

The boldness of the sentiment and the embellishments really keep the busyness in the background of your Halloween card, LeAnne! It never occurred to me that it looked busy! I loved it right from the start!

The collage of Halloween objects look wonderful over the striped and textual layers. Fabulous!
