Halloween/Birthday Card + Bag Done With My Original Artwork For Cuttlebug Challenge Blog

Hello All!

It is Wednesday and you know what that means.... The http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/ We are continuing on with our Birthday Celebration Palooza. This week we were asked to create a birthday card and gift bag. Just in case you didn't see my invitation and explanation....I have a friend that was born on Halloween. We always throw a party to cover both occasions. Thus the Halloween theme. You just thought I was loosing it didn't ya? LOL!

I did this card with one of my own sketches. I plan on starting my own line of stamps and or/ digis really soon and have been doodling away!

Remember, you can click on any image to get a gloser look!

If you scroll down to the next post, I have a short tutorial on how to turn YOUR sketches into images that can be popped, and you don't have to have crazy computer skills! ;)

For this set I used Core'dinations "Black Magic" papers that I ran through my Cuttlebug and distressed with sand paper. I also used Bazzill Swiss Dots CS and a little bit of Debbie Mumm "Harvest and Holiday" stack DP.

I would love it if you would leave a comment and let me know what you think about my set or original art.

Don't forget to scroll down and see my tutorial.
