Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #11

Hi all! Here is a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch:
Here is my card:

I used the beautiful frame from the Very Vintage Labels No. 4 for the front panel. It was stamped with dusty concord before I die cut it with Labels Four Nesties.

The sentiment was then stamped on to the side. I then stamped and cut out the larger witch from the Midnight Feast set and put her on the label with some rolled up glue dots. To finish the center piece up, I stamped the little bats from the same set a few times around the sentiment.

The patterned papers are from Graphic 45's Halloween In Wonderland collection. The seam binding is dyed with dusty concord to match. I also colored one large pearl with a purple Copic before I stuck it on the bow.

You can use any stamps you want for the challenge, but we would love it if you can use Waltzingmouse Stamps! Please go to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other Mischief Makers came up with and check out all the details for the challenge.

Hope you can join us this week!

Have a fabulous weekend, my friends! =)

Another fantastic creation!I love how you layered the card, the papers and stamps you used.

I will have to play with this sketch. I LOVE round cards. I still don't have any Waltzingmouse stamps....I will need to order some soon. They are so pretty and go well with my other obsession: Spellbinder dies.

Have a great weekend!
