Deconstructed Sketch 119

My BFF and I sometimes challenge each other to create a card and take turns picking a sketch to use from various websites.  No pressure (usually!) and no time frame.  I find that our friendly challenges are a great way to make me carve out some crafty time in my busy week… or just give me the kick in the butt I need to get my mojo flowing!  Today’s card is another from deconstructingjen.com (more about it here: http://deconstructingjen.com/deconstructed-sketch-119/).  I’m really pleased with how this one turned out:

I had so much fun with this one!!!  The complete die cut set is from Miss Kate Cuttables and can be found at http://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/50-store/freebie-of-the-day-halloween-owl.php for a mere 50 cents!  They have the cutest files and offer daily freebies… yes, I said daily!!!  In fact, all the die cuts on the card were in one set that also included a cemetery fence… as a freebie a few weeks back.  Can’t beat that!  I also used the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch, which just begged to be embellished with Stickles.  I added more Stickles to the owl and stars, some faux stitching, and a little hi-lighting with a white gel pen and it was done!  I finished the card off with a strip of stickled Drippy Goo on the inside and a clear glitter sentiment sticker that has probably been in my stash for years.  Whoo-hoo… using up that stash a little at a time!

My friend and I decided that we could make Halloween cards quickly and easily cause we don’t really tailor them to the recipient’s personality like we would a birthday card, and you have fewer decisions to make about colors and embellishments.  That said, you may be seeing quite a few Halloween cards here over the next few weeks!!!
