New Paper Sweeties Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday and Happy Labor Day weekend! I've got a sweet treat for you today, it's a sneak peek of Paper Sweeties' upcoming release! As we push ahead into Fall, I had a hankering to make some Fall-ish cards, namely this one here, using previously released Sophie and dressing her up with some Halloween goodness:

I dressed our girl Sophie in an adorable witch costume, complete with golden buckled hat and shoes. The black doily was colored with a Versafine Onyx Black pad and I made just a bit of it peek out from behind one of the panels. The ribbon is Mango Vintage Seam binding and the Black Jute/Twine bow is  from the Ribbon Carousel. The sentiment panel consists of a Scalloped Circle atop an Ironwork Motif die cut. 
Check out the Paper Sweeties blog today to see what other sets are being featured!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

  1. Absolutely perfect for this time of year, Andrea! LOVE that glittery sentiment and your yummy, buttoned bow! So sweet!

  2. This is adorable Andrea! Have a great holiday weekend!

  3. Sophie looks adorable in her witch costume - love that bit of black doily peeking out behind her and the clever way you mounted the sentiment on the die cut! Beautiful Halloween card Andrea!

  4. Adorable Halloween greeting card! I love her witch's costume and holding the treat bag. The black doily peeking out and the ironwork die look great.

  5. This card took my breath away when I first laid my eyes on it ... BRAVO! Sophie is so sweet dressed in her Halloween costume and the papers and embellishments you've chosen for your design are stunning!! Thanks so much for your magnificent talent showcasing the Sweeties so wonderfully :)

  6. I really like this! The black doily behind the little witch is a great touch, the papers you chose, well, just everything is fabulous. :)

  7. A wonderful little which Andrea!! Love the doliy and sweet layout!

  8. So cute, Andrea! I prefer fun Halloween to scary Halloween always!! My grandson (25, married and father of my new great-grandson) has hair just like you and your daughter. I did, too, until it all turned gray!! His is in a long pony tail... he is a computer programmer for a game company so it is tame in comparison to some of the others tatoos and piercings, etc. Anyway, long seems to be the only way to keep it tame because he refuses to use any of the great new products out there that I dabble with. With gray hair I get the fuzzies but not the ringlets so I still have to work with it. Anyway, I know what your girl is going through. There wasn't one prom or dance I went to in high school that it didn't rain after I'd gotten a salon "do" for the occasion! Yuk!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I always enjoy reading them and appreciate the kind words!
