Lauren's Saturday Sketch Challenge

I LOVED this sketch! I am also feeling so ready for the fall, Halloween, yummy apples, and falling leaves. I had to use the Spooky Sweets stamp set by PTI. Of course, I thought I'd use the new set but I also bought the old set at the same time and I ended up using the first set. I love them both and can't wait to play with the second set.

My card today has lots of glitter, slime, and Halloweeny things....what a great mix :). I pulled at the edges of the ribbon to give it a spookier less put together look. I used the Essential Glue pad for the first time and it is definitely essential! I got the Essential Glue pad from Papertrey Ink. It's $10 and you get a blank pad which you apply the glue to. Once it's applied, there are a certain number of uses for which it will be good for. I used it for the spider and the bat and it turned out great. I used Martha Stewart glitter glue for the name plate because I wasn't sure about the smooth surface. I popped up the green stem to make it stand out. I think it turned out well.

Some close ups of the glitter:

Essential Glue (which really is essential; I love this and it turns out perfect every time)

Love the glitter! And the whole card makes me excited for fall coming! Great use of the Martha punch as a background behind the pumpkin.
Essential glue? NOt heard of that. Is it Martha? I have been having trouble with getting my glue to hold my glitter with out worping.
