Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge & Announcement

Happy Thursday everyone and thanks for stopping by!! Today’s card is for this week’s sketch challenge “SASSC29”for Stamps and Smiles. Every Thursday a NEW sketch is posted along with samples from The Fresh Batch. We warmly invite you to play along, use your favorite stamps and supplies!!

I also noticed that I am close to 250,000 hits… WOW!! As a special thank you, one lucky winner will be my next guest designer for the Stamps and Smiles. I have a huge release coming out soon and would LOVE to have you guest design for me!! Now through August, I will pick one random person to win!! Want more of a chance to win, leave me a comment on each of my posts for the next week, the winner will be announced with the release date!

For my design I used the stamp set from Stamps and Smiles called Hello Spring. Since I have been in the mood to design Halloween cards, I created this fun design using Cuppy - Can you spot the extra detail I added to her? The background was embossed using the Haunted Halloween embossing folder by Cuttlebug. The extra detail on the corners were done using my circle punch along with some NEW Halloween punches by Martha Stewart. The punched out detail was dusted with craft ink to give it a soft glow. To finish off the card, I also decided to decorate the inside of my card.

How would you like to add this card to your collection? Leave me a comment and I will announce the winner on Thursday, August 27th. Please stop by the Stamps and Smiles blog for more fun samples from the design team.

See you on Saturday! Hugs...
