The sketch for this week kinda threw me for a loop a little. Doesn't it remind you of the "caution do not enter" barricade tapes? That was my first initial thought! Take a peek as here is our sketch for you to play with this week:

And my card:

I thought I would use mostly designer paper on my card called Motley Monsters and then add the two Tangerine Tango Cardstock strips that are stamped with the Holiday Invitations stamp set. It does kind of resemble "caution, monsters, do not enter" doesn't it?

I hope you plan on joining us this week. I would be so curious to see what you can come up with using our sketch!
Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
