Cardz TV Sketch Design Team - Halloween

Hey everyone!
I'm loving the sketches that Mary has created. They are perfect for both newbies, needing inspiration or to make a quick card.The challenge this week is to make a Halloween themed card using either sketch 4 or 5. I've always been partial to the design of sketch 5 so I chose that one.

As I was thinking of the design, I searched through the Halloween stash and discovered I didn't have any Halloween paper. What? Well, thank goodness for the pattern paper from Cricut Design Space.
Here's the youtube video showing how I created this card.

Sketch #5

I have 3 of Cardz TVs Halloween theme stamp sets. I couldn't decide witch (get it which?) one so I used Spooky Sayings and Frankly Frightful.

Hello there!

I'm so excited to be back in action for the Cardz TV stamps as a designer for the sketch challenges.
If you haven't tried any of them yet and need some inspiration go take a look:

Here is my card for the challenge this week. We were asked to create a birthday card using either sketch 2 or 3. I've used sketch #2.

I used Recollections 65 lb weight card stock for the base. The other pieces are scraps that I color matched. One peice had a birthday theme.

I used two stamp sets. The ticket and Happy Birthday came from "Ticket Talk". The star border came from "Basic Borders.

Fall Wreath

Hello and thanks so much for stopping by. I just finished this wreath, I started last year with putting the burlap on, by putting the sunflowers and scarecrow on. 
I'm on the fence on whether I like it but for now it's hanging at my front door.

I started with a 12 inch wire wreath ring that I'd bought at Michael's. I found the fantastic fall colored burlap and pulled it through the wreath openings. I made a bow and put it on with a pipe cleaner. The sunflowers are from 3D Floral Home Decor and the Scarecrow is from Create A Critter. 

Here's the video on how I made the sunflowers.

Thanks so much!
