SSSC135....Happy Halloween

Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the SWEET sketch Karen has for us this week:

I kept my card very clean and simple.
I knew right away when I saw the sketch that I wanted to use the new Stampin Up set called "Scaredy Cat" that I just got.  This cute little ghost sentiment was perfect for the main image panel of the sketch. I stamped it with black stazon onto some whisper white card stock. I stamped the ghost portion again onto some scrap whisper white and cut it out and added it to the main image with a pop dot. I added a couple of little red rhinestones that I had in my stash to the ghost for his eyes.
I matted this with some cherry cobbler card stock and then punched a piece of the silver glimmer paper with my scallop trim punch and added it to the bottom of the panel. I went to my Frightful Sight DS paper pack to choose and piece for the layer under the circle, I picked this dotted piece and matted it with some basic black. I then went to my card stock file to get some old olive for the base and was super surprised to find I had a couple of pieces of textured old olive, I thought that would be perfect for the base, love the look of the textured card stock. I then cut a circle from basic black with my nesties and embossed with the square lattice Embossing Folder. I added two black rhinestones to the top corners and it was done. Simple, but cute I think!!

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:

Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
