I'm submitting this card to Retro Sketches - RS#135 where we could pick any previous sketch and I've gone with RS#38, but made it landscape. I've used the colours from The Card Concept - CC#20 and gone with a clean and layered look. The design paper doesn't actually come in orange, I coloured it by blending distress ink over the top. I stamped the cobwebs and spider in Versamark and then added some mica powder for shimmer. The sentiment was stamped in black and I used a copic marker to colour the letters. I finished the front with an orange banner and a simple metal charm that I found in my stash (no idea who made it). On the inside I kept it simple with a black mat layer and some cobwebs and a spider and a fun sentiment.
I had a long chat with Ben yesterday, and he asked if he and his girlfriend could come over for a visit. Obviously, we said yes! It's still early days yet, but I'm hoping that they'll be here for Thanksgiving!
