Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #124

Happy Friday! Do you have any plan for the weekend? We are taking our cat children to get their shots tomorrow. I think the ride in the car will be interesting...

On to today's card for Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my card:

The super fun halloween themed paper are from graphic 45's
Halloween in Wonderland collection. This is a very fun collection and I really like it. I think some of the B-sides can be used in non-halloween cards.

The center trick or treat stamp and the bat are from Waltzingmouse Stamps' Midnight Feast set. It's a very pretty halloween set and the font on this one is kind of fun, so I think it's perfect for my card.

The pumpkin dude and zombie are from The Greeting Farm. I don't actually own this retired stamp set, a very sweet friend sent those stamped images to me last year. Thanks, girl! =)

The funky scallop border was cut using Tim Holtz' Scallops border die. I dyed the seam binding with dusty concord. I used the same dying method as Donna used in this post. I pressed dusty concord on my craft sheet, spritzed it with some water and used the seam binding to pick up the ink. Super easy way to customize your own ribbons!

Well, that's all I have for now. Don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with for this sketch!! Here are the links:

This is super cute, Alice!! Love how you flipped the sketch!

Good luck with your cats this weekend! I hate taking ours to the vet. They cry the whole way there (and I'm sure you know how awful cat cries can be!) and then once we get them inside they hiss at all the other animals there. So embarrassing! They really are nice cats, but apparently they don't like any other animals! lol
