You're Fang-tastic!


I rarely ever enter one card into more than two challenges but this time it fell together for four challenges! I started with Reverse Confetti's monthly Stock Your Stash challenge with a fall/Halloween theme. I have two grands with fall birthdays and they also are a big fan of why not combine the two?! I wanted to use the lime green and navy color palette for the Seize the Birthday challenge and it so happens they are collaborating with Color Hues to help them celebrate their 2nd year birthday.

Last but not least, the layout for my card uses the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. It's a classic one and is such a versatile layout! I started with stamping the three borders at the bottom then added texture by using Reverse Confetti's Pointed Out stencil with some glitter paste. The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card paper then colored with Copics. The navy Web Tag Layer die (Reverse Confetti) was layered over a print from RC's Fright Night 6x6" pad.

For some reason, Reverse Confetti's image for this challenge is not downloading for me. Hmmm...will have to try another day.

STAMPS: Elemental Stripes, Best Witches, Monsterous, Lift Me Up (Reverse Confetti).
INK: Pistachio, Navy Blue (Reverse Confetti).
PAPER: White (Papertrey Ink); Fright Night patterned paper 6x6" pad, Navy Blue (Reverse Confetti); X-Press It Blending Card.
DIES: Web Tag Layer, Best Witches, Monsterous, Lift Me Up (RC); Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-Namics (My Favorite Things).
OTHER: Crystal Stickles, Glossy Accents, Oval punch (Stampin' Up), Pointed Out stencil (RC), Glitter paste (Recollections), Copic markers.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!  ~Wanda

I love your fun use of fun patterns along the bottom instead of straight stripes! Such a great accent to the Halloween scene! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
