For the last two days Sketch~N~Scrap have been celebrating
World Card Making Day on facebook
They will be celebrating World Card Making all MONTH on their blog!!




Anyway today I am sharing with you my Halloween-y card
 that I made as Challenge 3 of the Facebook competition and Day 3 of 31DOH.

(I will show you Challenges 1 and 2 at a later stage)

CHALLENGE NUMBER THREE: Using this sketch, create a card that uses FALL COLORS and have it be a THANK YOU, GRATITUDE or FRIENDSHIP themed card.




This is my card, starting on a cream rectangular card base:



I decided to use William Blake's words...



For the banners I used strips of embossed spider web - similar to the one I used on my Day 1 calendar - I never make just one of something like this!! These were layered on some brownish DP from my stash as was the quote.


I then added a spider, a die cut bird and some orange domed stickers.



Blake's words can have either a negative or positive meaning...
I am going with the positive where the web is the spider's home, 
the nest the bird's home where the chicks are nurtured.
So Friendship is a nurturing positive place which feels like home...
As such I will link this card to the Path of Positivity Challenge #42


Happy Hopping!
