Gettin' sketchy at ATS

Good morning! Please be sure to scroll down for my TGF Trick or Treat blog hop post.

It's Wednesday and as always that means we've got a new challenge up over on the ATS blog. This week we have a new sketch from Janneke to follow and it's a great one! :)

For my card I actually flipped the sketch on it's head so that the semi-circle fell at the bottom... that way I could use this great haunted house piece of paper to set the scene for miss Larkspur. Then it was all about getting fun with embellishments... I just couldn't resist using another one of those Making Memories skully flowers and I thought the ghost brad was a fun touch to kind of be spooking this tentative little fairy.

Oh, and I tried out some new-to-me stamping cardstock on this one, Copic X-Press It. I've got to say that I'm quite impressed! Nothing bled outside the lines, the colors all blended beautifully and it is much thinner than my beloved Paper Trey Ink so it made cutting the image out that much easier. All in all it definitely won me over enough to continue using more of it. :)

Ok, now it is your turn to play in the challenge and remember, every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your card must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please! Supply list:
