Thursdays with Lindsay... again!

Hi Everyone! So why am I doing Thursday again? It's not that I'm not happy that the weekend is here. Nope, that's not it at all. I'm doing Thursday again because, well... uh-hem... I am a ditz! There, I admitted it. You see, Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is sponsoring ICSketches again this week and of course the design team supports this by playing along. Well, I forgot. Not really forgot, I just really wanted to play with Lindsay's new set and forgot all about what I originally started out to do. So I'm here to make it good and post my card using this fabulous sketch.

Here's the sketch:


And here's my card:



I think my card turned out really cool and Hollyanne has already claimed it to give to a teacher for Halloween. This is using two stamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff: Crow Tree and Happy Haunting. The paper was something given to me in last year's Halloween swap. Although my photo isn't picking up that I used the Distressed Cuttlebug Embossing folder, I did use it to give it more texture and then finally finished it off with some metal buttons. This was a super easy card to put together in just minutes.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit me tomorrow, there are lots of things going on at Paper Craft Planet in celebration of World Card Making Day and I'll be there to party with MyGrafico, but I'm planning to have some other goodies, too. I'm going to have a challenge of my own that is separate from my challenge blog and I'll have a nice prize package for one winner. So be sure to come back. And we'll see if I get something in the mail tomorrow that I'll be able to share with you, too. Crossing my fingers....





Edited to add that I am entering this card in for the Stamp, Scrap & Doodle's challenge - if it's allowable.
