Challenge #256! Join in!

Hello! I'm getting pretty nervous about the start of school so I use my crafting time as escape from those feelings. It calms me!! This week Just Us Girls Marisa has a great challenge for us!  It's the 5th Saturday of August so Marisa has offered the Wild Card challenge-ANYTHING BUT A STANDARD A2 CARD!  Could be a tag or gift package, an odd sized card or (what I've made) a shape card!  Endless possibilities!  
You can see what the craftly girls on the team did HERE

I used Spellbinders dies to creat my flower background.  I didn't really know where I was going with the flower until I noticed the MFT set- Witch Way is the Candy? just waiting to be used. I really used it-4 of the images AND the dies!  The fence die cut you see behind is from Impression Obsession.  My images are stamped on water color paper and water colored with reinkers from Stampin Up. The flower center is raised with dimensional foam tape and the images are glued to that. 
I added a little sparkle to the pumpkin, witch's cape and hat and the bat with a shiny gel pen.  Just a fun card to make and I sure to love my fall and Halloween stamps and colors!  Remember to check out the DT blog for inspiration and then come back to link up what you've created! You have until Thursday, Sept. 4 at 9 pm to enter.
All August Chics of the Week have a chance to become out guest designer in October!
Thanks for coming by today! Have a great day!

The images on this are precious. That batt just makes me smile :) Glad you can destress by creating - bonus for us too! Great take on the challenge.

Love it! Those images are adorable and you have created a super cute scene with them. Love the shape and how you sponged in the background leaving the lighter edges.

Love the fun shape of your card and the cute images. I had to laugh at the little frog. He has a great expression on his face. Great job!

Lisa Kind said...

Is this one you purchased last week? I seem to remember oohing and ahhing over that cute frog! I love your Halloween cards! Can't wait to see more!

I'm sure the school nerves will be squelched once you get in there and meet up with your new team! Happy Labor Day weekend!

I so understand the nervous feeling when school is coming... We are in week three now and all is settling down. I never sleep well the first few weeks and I'm just an aide. I take my job far to serious....but I guess that is a good thing. Anyway, your card is super adorable Cheryl!! Of course it's because your so good with those markers!! Enjoy your weekend and hope your year is great!
