Hello all!! Welcome to our fourth challenge at Paper Therapy. Paper Therapy is an online forum for scrapbookers and card makers to share their work, meet new friends, learn new tips and techniques and have fun!! I hope you can join us every week in our challenges! The previous three have been SUPER fun and were seeing some really incredible designs!
Here's how it works. Every monday a new challenge will be posted in the forum. You upload your design and have the chance to win the weekly challenge. A fabulous prize and winner blinkie will be awarded the first challenge winner of every month, and then subsequent challenge winners will win an awesome blinkie to share with the whole world, showing them that you rocked the Paper Therapy challenge.
This week's challenge was to make a project based on only using scrap paper and ribbon that we had laying around. Luckily, I never throw my scraps out (including sticker sheets!), so I had a lot to work with! YAY! I even had just enough lettering stickers to make a sentiment. I pulled out my current Hocus Pocus line from Pink Paislee. This line is originally designed as a Halloween line, but I decided to switch it around to make it a Thanksgiving card.

I took some "Witching Hour" scraps and pleated the paper really tight.
Then I stamped the pumpkin image with pigment ink on the pleated paper
and let it dry, popping it up with foam dots.
I took the rest of my scrap paper and cut them into various squares, all an
inch tall. I then inked each and adhere to the card, tying some
seam binding and bakers twine scraps.
It was SUPER fun working on a Halloween card for this week's challenge! Make sure to post your card to the message board by midnight on Friday, October 29th. I hope that you play along with us this week at Paper Therapy
