Twisted Sketches #031

It's Saturday so that means it's time for a new card sketch over at Twisted Sketches! I'm definitely enjoying being on this team and working with Anam's great sketches. This week's twist was 'glitter' which worked out really well for my plan to do a Halloween card. Here's the card I submitted:
For this one I used a black Coredinations cardstock along with Pink Paislee Hocus Pocus. The sticker is K & Co and the glittery dots are from American Crafts. The penant stamp is Studio Calico.
Here is my back-up:
Same papers & glitter Thickers here - but this time I embossed the cardstock and sanded it to reveal the orange core. I thought the scallops used upside down looked like bats. The journal spot stamp is from Midnight Rooster.
To see the sketch, check out the inspiring work of the rest of the design team and play along - check out the Twisted Sketches blog. Every week Anam picks a fave - maybe it will be you this week?
