As we head into December I have another sketch for you from Sketch-N-Scrap. This is a sketch I designed and the team came up with a lot of fun different layouts.

Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #84

Halloween is creeping up, right around the corner! I had fun designing this sketch in honor of the upcoming holiday. Head over to the Sketch-N-Scrap to see what the other design team members came up with.
I embellished this card with encaustic wax, melting a block of it and dripping it on the card. It is a fun technique that adds a certain touch.

WCMD Sketch #1

I don't know if you've seen, but Sketch-N-Scrap is celebrating World Card Making Day all month long. We still have our regular two card sketches this month, but we are also giving you a new one every Friday this month. Our first WCMD sketch is actually a flash back to the very first card sketch here at SNS. This sketch came out May 5th, 2013.

 Here is the card I came up with for today's sketch. Perfect for a little girls birthday.
 And as I like to do on flash back sketches, here is the card I made back in 2013.
