FMS 54: I'm Batty for You

Hi All,

Happy Sunday!  I had a full day of arts and crafts yesterday and I'm glad to say that I have my own project to share with you.  My hubs and I made it out to an arts and crafts show on Saturday..no purchases made (except some fudge), but it did inspire me to create.  It was pretty disappointing. Not a lot of seasonal handmade items to peruse :(  Are you guys finding that with shows that you go to? I guess that means we just need to get crafty and make our own.

I knew when I sat down in the craft room what I wanted to start with.  I had saved these super cute scalloped embellishments on Pinterest.  I love how they incorporated the polka dot paper and the black gingham ribbon.  I pulled out all of my punches and put my embellie together.  I then went in search of a sketch to pair it up with.  I found the perfect one over at Freshly Made Sketches:


Since I already had the 'hard' part done...hee, hee, all I had to do was figure out what pretty paper I wanted to add to the horizontal strip.  This is what I came up with:


I mixed a little bit of old with a little bit of new.  That super cute orange Rik Rak print is from the new DSP: Howlstooth & Scaringbone.  I adore it!  Both the black/white polka dot and the clear polka dot sheet are from the "vintage" DSP: Night & Day.  Oh what a fun combo they make!

I was amazed at how easy this card came together.  I guess when you have such great inspiration to start with, it makes it easy.  If you would like to add the Howlstooth & Scaringbone paper to your collection, send me an email or click on the Order SU Online icon in the top right corner.  This is Item Number: 126906.  It's a great pack and can be used for more than just the holiday season.  I'll be sharing some more ideas soon!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
