Sometimes you have one of those quiet nondescript days, today was one of them. Work was work, dinner was dinner. I made a card and actually watched a TV show. I’m not a huge TV person and I haven’t watched a series in a long time. I was looking through iTunes and saw this show called Forever, it looked interesting and the pilot was free so I watched it. It has a kind of interesting premise, the lead character is 200 years old and can’t die. They prove this by having him be a part of a terrible subway crash in the first 10 minutes of the show. The rest of the show was pretty interesting too, if you have some free time give a watch and let me know what you think. We need to mix it up every once in a while don’t we? I’ll do that by watching some TV! LOL! Sometimes I’m so exciting I can’t stand it! LOLOLOL!
Now that I have had my little tangent lets get to today’s post. I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for our sketch this week…
I was quite impressed that I didn’t see the flowers when I looked at the sketch, I saw Halloween! For my card base I used a piece of Bermuda Bay Card Stock. The background is two pieces of paper from the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper Pack with a piece of Basic Black Chevron Ribbon across the middle that is adhered around the back with some Sticky Strip before mounting it to the card with SNAIL. My panel is a piece of Tangerine Tango with another piece of the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper tucked underneath the right hand side. The three stamped images are from the Freaky Friends Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Basic Gray and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers. I used my Paper Snips to cut them out and they are all adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Basic Black that I flagged the right end of. To complete the card I adhered three enamel dots in the lower right hand corner (a little prezzy from Taylor!). I really like it when you can use a few different pieces from a pack of DSP together and I love when the stamp set coordinates so perfectly! There is my freaky little Halloween card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Take a minute to stop by the blog and see what the other Designers have done with the sketch and let’s see what you come up with! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and I thank you for your visit! Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends! 🙂
