Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #154

Happy Friday! I hope you're having a good week and that you're looking forward to the weekend. We have some much-needed rain and a little cooler temps in the forecast for this weekend and I am hoping to stay in and scrap!

It's time for the last card sketch of the month at Sketch N Scrap today. Sketch Artist Lisa has created a sketch that I know I will be using a lot! Here's a look at the sketch:

Here is my card:

I made a Halloween card based off of the sketch using Close To My Heart's (D1806) Hello Pumpkin - Scrapbooking - stamp set. I just love that little ghost and couldn't wait to use him. I'm sure you'll be seeing him again before Halloween rolls around!

Like my Christmas papers, I am starting to lack in the Halloween papers department...I think I may need to order a new collection for this year. I did find these papers from an old Close To My Heart collection that I thought would be fun for this card. I can't even tell you how old they are - probably heading close to the 10 year mark - but they are some that I just couldn't bear to use at the time. This year they will be used up, whether that be on cards or on a layout!

In place of the banners, I used some ribbon doubled over to make 3 loops. I remember a long time ago when these were a thing. They make a cute little addition to a project and it's a little different way to get some ribbon used up! I think I still may have a package of embellishments with ribbon loops around here somewhere. 

Since I added the ribbon underneath the image panel, I needed to add some foam tape to it. I also popped up the ghost. 

I love how this fun little card turned out and it is just ready and waiting to be mailed out to someone special in a week or two!

Head over to Sketch N Scrap to see the fun cards from the rest of the design team. I hope you find some time to play along with us before the end of the month!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!


  1. This is so cute. I have made tons of stuff with the old Hooligans paper. It was a favorite for the longest time. :)

  2. LOVE this card Lori! I used that cute ghost last week on a Halloween card for my ladies class at the assisted living! I think he is so cute. I LOVE the addition of the ribbon for the banners, great idea!
