Beware… Happy Halloween!

MisplacedMojo.com MisplacedMojo.com

I love how spooky this card turned out!!! I used a set from Recollections, the Michaels brand. Sadly they do not name their sets, but the #520996 was on the back. I used 2 images on the outside and 2 images on the inside. I’m still on my Prismacolor kick, so these were colored with pencils and I fussy cut all the images. I’m using the sketch challenge from The Paper Players for this layout. I used a SSS stitched square die to cut a vellum mat for the the focal image to help it stand off from the busy background paper and popped it up on foam tape, as well as the sentiment banner. The jack-o-lantern is popped up on extra foam tape to lift it up higher than the focal. The photos of this card do not do it justice and IRL the colors are deeper and the card is much gloomier. *sigh*

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

    • I’m not normally a sketch girl, but when I laid the pieces out on my desk to design the layout, I realized I had just recreated the sketch I saw earlier that day on your site! This just begged to be submitted to The Paper Players challenge!!!

    • If I could remember to take pics before I write in the cards you would see almost all of my cards are decorated on the inside but alas, I get ahead of myself and frequently have to reopen the sealed envelope to take pictures quickly before the mailman arrives! LOL
