WCMDFS08 and WSC60 Get Well Soon


Happy World Cardmaking Day!!!

I told ya - I'll be back with another card....

I made this one for the WCMDFS08 and the WCMDWT08 that is going on over on SCS right now!!!

Don't they have some fun, fun Challenges going on today??? If you haven't seen hop on over and check it out!!!
The Way to use it Challenge is about - showing off a tree image....yeahhhh - I got the perfect tree - LOL!!!

Next - the Featured Stamper today is Sherry.
Click right here to find out more!!! I chose to case this card from Sherry.

I flipped the card around and used the new fabulous *Spooky Silhouettes* from *There She Goes* as my main *Halloween* theme!!!

I kept the same fun colors as Sherry - Plum Pudding, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black and Whisper White - I didn't use any DP. Instead of Ribbon I added Purple Brads!!!

Hope you like it???
In honor of this fun, fun day - Julia from *Little Paper Shop* released two brand new Sets today - *Topiary* and *A Dream* plus Julia is discounting all other stamps 20% off!!!!
My card is featuring the *Topiary* Set. I combined it with Beate's wonderful WSC60 Sketch and the fab OCC ladies Challenge to add *Bling on the Bling*.

I made the Sketch into a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card and flipped the layout to fit my image.

I forgot to mention that I also used Kristina Werner's awesome Color Combo #24 - Very Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip. Dont' they look great together???

Anyway - I have scored my background with my new Scor-it and created the *Grid Technique*.

Next I layered the panels according to the Sketch - instead of the bottom long one I added a Satin Ribbon. The Kiwi Kiss panel was pierced in two rows and raised with Stampin Dimensionals. The image itself was inked in Chocolate Chip and colored with Prismacolor Markers. I bedazzled the image with Dazzling Diamond Glitter and added Jumbo Eyelets with Clear Rhinestones. The senitment was also inked with Chocolate Chip Ink and I pierced right below it.
Hope you will be able to stamp all day too??? Come back later to see what else I've come up with?!? Until then ~TFL~......
