My Lucky Stars


I have made this card to enter into 2 challenges. The card is made using the sketch from the WOJ challenge and this week's CCT challenge was to make something spooky or with stars. Since I have been making a lot of Hallowe'en themed projects, I decided to go with the stars!

I've made this card to give to my husband for Hallowe'en. Let me explain! LOL! We met at a Hallowe'en party 21 years ago and have been together ever since! We were both so young and still in school. Now, I had dressed as a witch (the cute kind not the scary kind) and he had made his costume at the last minute and had dressed up as garbage. I know that is hard to imagine but he had the garbage bag incorporated into the costume with all kinds of funny odds and ends stuck to it! Charlie is a little scruffy in this stamp so I though it would serve well!
  • Stamps: Whiff of Joy, Verve Stamps Sentiment
  • Ink: Memento Black
  • Paper: Basic Grey Ambrosia, SU! Black & Grey Cardstock
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Brads and silver flourish from stash, Sakura pen to add dots and highlights
  • Tools: Scor-Pal, SU! Corner rounder (to make the scallopped edge)
Thanks for stopping by. I will have a new card tomorrow for Sketch Saturday. It is a gorgeous sketch!
