My card for the PPA Sketch Challenge is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" square .  Making envelopes for cards that are not the usual size is a breeze now that we have the Envelope Punch Board.  I will talk some more about that later.  First, take a peek at my card & envelope.

The talented Nicole Watt provided the sketch for the challenge today.

I turned the sketch on its side for my card design.  The sentiment from Halloween Bashwas my starting point & the rest of the card was built around it.  Stampin' Markers allowed me to color the words from the sentiment in different colors.  I like that look!   And, the Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper had the perfect paper to work with my sentiment.

Double sided paper makes the best envelopes because you don't have to worry about lining the envelope.  The very vanilla layer was embossed with the Argyle Embossing Folder.  I chose it because I felt that it fit with the pattern created by the banners with their flag ends.

A trio of banners in Champagne Glimmer Paper & Summer Starfruit add some fun to the right-side of my card.  A Pumpkin Pie Banner anchors the bottom and it helps to make the spider pop.  A few Basic Black Candy Dots add the finishing touch.

Honestly, I am a little surprised by just  how often I have used the Halloween Bash stamp set.  It is so versatile.  Check out the images from the set.
