Fab Friday – Challenge 72 – Among the Branches

It's time for a new Fab Friday challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog!

This week we have a sketch challenge:

Fab Friday Logos-72

Even though I'm on an amazing jag of Christmas and holiday designs, I decided to do a Halloween card for this sketch, since I just got the Spider Web Doilies and was itching to use them! I took a few liberties with this sketch, though, since I didn't have an element as large as that star that would look good, and I didn't put the slightly diagonal element in front of the doily but behind it. But I'm really happy with what I have created! Lookie:

GOJUS! (YILM!) I love the crow and tombstone paper from the Happy Haunting DSP, and I thought it made a great background for the doily.

This is my nod to the star element in the sketch. I found something I had pinned regarding using paperclips with banners for an embellishment, and it works SO well here! I punched the star out of the Black Glimmer paper and placed a rhinestone colored with a black Sharpie (looks more purple than black) on top.

I also added two more rhinestones colored with a black Sharpie in the bottom corner to balance the design.

The Trick or Treat is from A Little Something Set. I stamped the focal piece with the new archival Basic Black pad. It's nice and black!
