Sketch Challenge at Stuck On U Sketches

Happy Halloween Everyone!
Here is another awesome sketch challenge at Stuck On U Sketches. This sketch will run from Oct 26th-Nov 8th. I just loved, loved this sketch and I hope you like my interpretation.  It is a picture of my fur baby COZMO. He is a gentle giant, who looks really scary but is the most gentlest and spoiled of beasts.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my layout:

I used papers from last years Authentique Afterglow collection and Pink Paislee House of Tree collection. I did a lot of distressing, layering, and some hand stitching. 

Here is a closeup of the flower cluster. These flowers are from prima, petaloo, and kaisercraft. The chipboard is from Dusty Attic bracket frame set. I colored it with acrylic paint and stamped it with embossing powders from lindy's stamp gang in cleopatra's copper.

And here's another closeup of the corner in the bottom left. I thought the die was perfect for this layout. "Fantastic terrors never felt before", I'm sure this is what people feel when they see my scary looking doggy. HAHA!

And here is my interpretation of the sketch. I've had these papers since last year and finally I get to use them! 

They are papers from Fancy Pants Design, Oct 31 collection.
I fussy cut some of the pumpkins and used raised dots to give them dimension. I also used some flowers from Prima, kaisercraft and petaloo. I thought this card looked festive for this month. Spooooky.

Card Sketch Challenge at Stuck On U Sketches

I can't believe it's almost winter, hasn't the year flown by..sure has for me! And here is another awesome card sketch for the challenge at Stuck On U Sketches which will run from October 3rd-16th. This sketch was created by none other than, Leah Schaeffer. I loved this sketch, it was so easy and fun to work with. Here it is folks:

As you can see I flipped the sketch when creating my card. I used papers from my Swirlydoos Kit, which included papers from the Prima Romance Novel Collection. This was my first time creating a card like this, the sketch was total inspiration. 

The large daisy is from Prima and the smaller flowers are from my personal stash. I used rub-on's from Kaisercraft. 

I made the punched paper in the middle using some graphic 45 Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock. It's the black cardstock which sanded down, you see the clock impressions. I punched the small butterflies with an MS punch that I have, and added some stickles glitter. 

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed creating it! Please stop by SOUS and take a look at the fabulous cards my fellow design team members created.
