Ladies in the Limelight

Pin It


Are you feeling a little "batty" lately?
Must be because Halloween is just around the corner!

Time for a sketch challenge!

Follow the above sketch and use anything Halloween themed or Halloween colors...and remember ~ your supplies/stamps don't have to be from Limelight for you to play along!

Here are the important details:
* Sketch challenge with a focus on anything Halloween themed or Halloween colors
* Uploads to SCS should have the keyword: LLPC005
* Leave a comment with a link to you card on THIS POST on Mandy's blog through Sunday, Oct 5th to be in the random drawing to WIN both the Spooky Stickers and Spooky Words Stickers sheets!

Here's my take on the challenge:


I knew I wanted to use this Swirly Owl by Stampendous, he's just so Fall-ish.
I embossed him in black on the reverse side of the Spooky Stripes / Orange Dots by Pebbles, inc.
The middle owl is popped up.



I embellished the card with some yummy ribbons:
Sheer Black with White Polka Dots
Raven Tulle

I finished it off with a black prima and white brad.
