Caardvarks: Sketchfest Saturday - Final Sketch!

Final day of the Caardvarks Sketchfest! Can hardly believe that I've done 7 cards in as many days. The sketches were all by Heidi Van Laar and she's definitely made me go beyond my comfort zone in a few of these to test my card making skills. It's all been in fun though and I really enjoyed the week...thank you to Caardvarks and Heidi!

My dear husband gave me the idea for this little card today to end my Sketchfest experience by saying I should make a Halloween card, so that's what got made. I didn't put up much of a fight because I wanted to try out the black/purple combination I've seen from other blogs and I had some cute Halloween ribbon that I recently got at Target. (I swear the $1 bin ribbons just keep jumping into my basket every time I go by!)

Took one of my Michaels $1 stamps by Recollections and modified it a bit with the leaves to make it a bit more 3D and found the little ghost on one of my printed papers. They both got popped up with foam squares. Doubled up my Target ribbons too. Aren't the little stars cute?

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the wonderful comments! Congrats to all Sketchfest participants that made it through the week!
