Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #126

 
Welcome to another great sketch by Michelle over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog!
 
It's taken me a while, but I finally got a chance to break into my CTMH Nevermore paper packet.  LOVE it!  It really is a very versatile pack that is not limited to just Halloween, although I did choose to go in the Halloween direction with this card and I'm also entering into the ChouxChoux Paper Art Challenge #1.
 
I have to say thank you to Jody Gustafson for the inspiration for the pumpkin.  For her project for last week's Atlantic Hearts challenge she used the Artistry pumpkin and then inserted her own shapes to make the Jack-O-Lantern face she wanted so I did the same and loved her shapes, but didn't want to completely copy it so I found some different ones.  I just love her project and if you click on her name above you can take a look at it or check it out on the AHSC Blog.
 
I made some more flowers from cardstock using the same technique as I did for the pink flowers I used on some previous projects and can tell you I'm in the middle of cutting some more in varying colors for a canvas project I'm working on.  I love them... they are simple, but pretty and I love the distressed look of them.  The sassy cat in a hat is a free digital image that I downloaded through ChouxChoux Paper Art, the sentiment is from one of the Artistry stamp sets, gold sequins from CTMH, orange sequins from Paper Sweeties, and shimmer trim and Scaredy Cat assortment for some added shtuff! 
 
Be sure to go to both of these challenges and check out the fantastic artwork created by participants and design teams and play along while you're there!  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to let me know you were here!

  4. OMG, I love love love that paper pack! I just got mine the other day! Of course CTMH is something I play with quite a lot around here as there are a group of us that "accidentally" end up with a party once a month! Anyhow, thanks for your awesome comments! I wanted to give you a link to the cat/hat graphic. http://thegraphicsfairy.com/halloween-clip-art-vintage-owl-cat/

  9. Very cool Halloween card. The pumpkin eyes are big and wide and a little scary, but then it's Halloween. I thought my Halloween card was pretty unique, but your's is a winner.
