InStyle Stamps Sketch Challenge

Its the beginning of the month and that means Sketch Challenge time at InStyle Stamps!!! Above is the sketch we were to follow. And, this month, the design team is ringing in he holidays with a Halloween and/or Christmas card assortment for you to get your juices flowing!  How awesome would it be to have holiday cards done ready to go in the mail by August???  Cool, huh?  So... on to my card.  All images used in the sketch challenge by the DT will be in the store by July 16th!!

My card today was with the Candy Corn Family from InStyle Stamps.  How SWEET are they???!!! PUN intended!! Hee Hee 

I admit, this sketch was a bit of a challenge for me.  I could NOT for the life of me decide on anything!! Mostly, I think, it was my last night in my "make-shift" studio before they moved me to my newly remodeled one and I was HOT, tired and certainly scattered everywhere!!!

I used my Copics to color my images and dabbed a bit of Vivid London Fog ink around the edges of my Deckled Rectangle Nestabilitie.  I added a Scalloped Circle Nestie to the left side and felt it was a bit plain so I added HALF of a silk flower and some self-adhesive nail heads to the center.  I also sponged some of the Vivid London Fog ink onto the flower.  When I added the buttons I wanted to do them the same color as my Candy Corn Family and instead of doing THREE layers of buttons, I decided the yellow card stock was my initial color so I added just the orange and white button.  

On the inside I really really wanted to do some type of "spider web" stamped design and like I said... my studio was a disaster and I couldn't find anything I really wanted... so I just punched a few swirls and added them to my card stock border.

Be sure and stop over at InStyle Stamps Blog and add your card to Mr. Linky.  You could be a winner of four digi images!!  Deadline to link is August 1st so hurry on over and add your fabulous work and play along!!
