CASe This Sketch & PDCC Challenge!

 My last minute post for making in time for two challenges with one card....
Here is Challenge #1 CAS(E) this sketch!
And  Challenge #2 The Play Date Cafe #154
Here is the result....
Happy Halloween!
I used a lot of white space for this card because the color combo is so deep and rich!
Stamps: Vintage Notepad (Market Street Stamps), Chairs and Chandeliers (Hero Arts)
Sentiment : SRM Stickers 

I was asked by Shirley-Bee (who also have a card for this PDCC challenge) the other day if orange is my favorite color...well, it seems that it is my go-to color for card-making, that's for sure. I thought I was always into red, but time has changed :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
edited: you can see the dry embossing folder that I used ( 2nd one from the left)

OK, this one takes the cake. Love the combo of techniques. The small dosage of those difficult colors. I'm a sucker for chandeliers and for lined paper but I would never thought of putting them together. Fabulous result. And that it's a Halloween card - too classy.

maria f. said...

Ja voll! Had to come back to say "Herzlichen Gluckwunsch" :)
