Here's to Cheers and the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge

It is time for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  This week we have a lovely sketch challenge.  


I have been challenging myself to use up my package of the Halloween Night Specialty DSP.  I have used pieces of this patterned paper for non Halloween projects  here, here, and here.  I hope you will agree that the Halloween Night DSP is not just for Halloween!

I used the silver foil dot pattern and the silver foil spider web pattern from the Halloween Night Specialty DSP on this card.  I was a little concerned about using the web piece but I tried to use a section that did not have too much of the spider web design and I think it works.  What do you think?  I also used the Fancy Frost Specialty DSP and like the texture and interest it adds.  The sentiment is from the Here's to Cheers stamp set which was embossed in silver to continue the silver theme.

Be sure to go to Create with Connie and Mary and get all the details about this sketch challenge.  While you are there be sure to check out what the other designers made.  I hope you will be motivated to join in and participate in the challenge.

Oh...this is so elegant looking and perfect for any celebration! I thought that Halloween Nights DSP had a lot of great non-Halloweeny type prints, too, and have just about used all my up! Great job with the CCMC sketch this week!

The color combination of black, white and silver is so elegant! Wonderful interpretation of the sketch this week Sharon!

Love your card! It is so elegant. The colour scheme is fabulous! You would never guess the DSP was a spider web pattern! Looks stunning

What a great use of the Halloween paper Sharon! As soon as I saw your card I was wondering where the paper came from - I would never have guessed and mine hasn't been out of the packet since October 31st! I will look at it now with fresh eyes - this is such an elegant card with the black and silver colour combo against the white. Gorgeous!
