Freshly Made Sketches #48

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Yesterday, was a brand new sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches blog. I've been trying to work on a few Halloween things so when the time comes I have a few things to give out. I worked yesterday & today trying to get something put together and just couldn't get it to go. I walked away last evening and today I gave it another shot. I'm not sure why I was having so many issues with it, maybe it was just me but today I got it to work! 
Below is the sketch for this week & my card.......



Before I started anything I got out all my Halloween supplies to see what I had to work with. I had this pack of Halloween Night DSP which is retired from years ago. I'm trying to use up what I have before I go and buy more and sometimes that is really hard to do but i'm trying to stick to my guns!  I pulled out this adorable little set from SU called Fangtastic. I hardly ever used it since I had purchased it right before we moved to Missouri 2 years ago. Most of my sets are old & retired. I colored my image with the colors that are in the papers and added the MS Spider Web Border Punch and 3 pieces of Vintage Violet Grosgrain. I also added 4 little rhinestones, popped up the image and called it done.  I almost didn't think I was gonna conquer this sketch! LOL

This is SO cute. I have seen a similar little stamp in Michael's clearance bin (maybe I HAVE IT!). Nice to see what can be done with it. Fabulous papers & layout. TFS

I know exactly what you mean when you say you're trying to use up your existing stash. I still have some of this paper too! I have to confess that it's my favorite Halloween paper but that might be the nostalgia talking! I really love your little Eddie Munster image and the spider web border! Thanks for joining us t Freshly Made Sketches!

Cute card. I want that paper punch! I've tried to find it at the craft stores and it is always sold out! It goes well on this card, and I also have some of this paper....Nice card!
