Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #130

This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down to see my card made using the debut rabbah stamp from Jane's Doodle. Thanks! =)

Hi all! It's me again. I am here to share a card for this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's fabulous sketch created by our own Sketch Crew member Rosie Hughes:


Here is my card:


I used the super cute Happy Owl-O-Ween illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller for my card. You can find RAM's new fall stamps exclusively at PaperWorks Co.


I couldn't wait to ink this one up when I received my stamps this week. Hope you don't mind a purple owl! =) I think my moon is more like a egg yolk. LOL! I colored it too yellow, but I had fun coloring this one!


The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Matilda collection. The sentiment came with the stamp. I colored the sky when the image was still in the die to get the white border.

Well, that's all I have for now. Don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with for this sketch!! Here are the links:
