Sweet Sketch 15 and Sweet Sketch Double Take
Sweet Sketch Wednesday

This week is the Fifteenth Week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. We are doing two sketches this take a few moments and head over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to see what the Design Team has created...You will be inspired to create your own cards this week. If you play play either sketch, you may be one of the lucky winners as our sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe. As a winner you will be able to choose three stamps sets from The Cutting Cafe. Check out all the details at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Birds of a feather flock together...

I had so much fun creating this card. When I purchased the bird stamps, I knew I wanted to create a beach card. For the past 32 years our family has enjoyed the beauty of Cannon Beach in Oregon. The only thing this card is missing is Haystack Rock and all the critters that are found there. I was able to locate a baby sand dollar from our adventures and added it to the card. The birds have been stickled to add some sparkly dimension. When I found the blue stripe paper in my stash, I thought it might look like the ocean. The tan paper has a very granual look and has various specks so I thought it was a good choice to replicate the sand.

Below is a closer view of the birds...

Don't forget to look at the Double Take, too!

Regina at The Cutting Cafe is our sponsor this week. Check out her site and view her digi stamps. I love Halloween so I chose the Ekk, Ekk, Ekk, Ekk Spider and the Happy Halloween sentiment. I'm not sure why I chose the spider...because I hate spiders...I think this one looks too real! But I suppose that is what makes Halloween scary. I loved using my new Martha Stewart Spider Web border punch.
I have two versions of this card. Tell me which one you like! The stamped image included the Ekk, Ekk, Ekk, Ekk web. I added orange stickle to the spider's eyes.

Happy Halloween Supplies:
Stamp: The Cutting Cafe: Halloween This and That
Paper: SU Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore, Black, My Mind's Eye Boo! To You "Fright Night" Paper, Bo Bunny's Back to Backs
Embellishments: MS Spider Webs, Ribbon, SU Modern Label
