Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge - SASSC31

Happy Thursday everyone and thanks for stopping by!! Today’s card is for this week’s sketch challenge “SASSC31”over at 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 got a little crazy with my card but had a lot of fun designing it. As you can see by my layout, I used some of my Halloween punches from Martha Stewart and my Halloween dies from Sizzix. To give the elements a little spooky glow, some were embossed and even sponged using white craft ink.

Since I have not used Carl the cupcake for a while, I inked him up and colored him in using my Copics. Don't you just LOVE his treat bag?!?! The bag was created using kraft cardstock, crumbled up and ink for some extra highlight. I added the handle using some twine. Because I forgot to add the glitter to Carl, I added it after I took the picture.

For more fun samples using this sketch, please stop by the Stamps and Smiles blog, The Fresh Batch have some really cute samples to help inspired you!!

There is no time limit on our challenge, so please play along whenever you are able! However to be eligible for the Stamps and Smiles goodie bag each week, please have your card uploaded the night before at 6 pm central time.

Enjoy your day! Hugs,
