Happy Halloween......{TKJ Sketch Challenge #140}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
And this week the challenge is:
A Sketch Challenge 
based on the sketch as seen below


I LOVE working with sketches and here is my inspiration! 
Sure hope you like it!!

I wanted to make a Halloween card..seeing that tomorrow is October 1st and it is almost Halloween time. Plus I thought this sketch would look so adorable with an image made to look like the circle was a moon. So with that being said, I ran with that image in my head and found the cutest digi from Some Odd Girl to work with. 
Meet Witchy Tia...isn't she adorable??? I took her into my Silhouette Studio, traced her and then made a frame around her so I could have a nice border for her. After she was cut out, I colored her using my copic markers and then set her aside to assemble my card.
I used a piece of Blackboard Stock Paper as my card base and then added my layers of designer papers from My Minds Eye~ Mischievous paper pack. Again using my Cameo, I cut 2 circles, one in the matching designer paper and another using more of the Blackboard Stock Paper. Once my layers were all cut, I ran the mat through my sewing machine adding 2 different stitches and then adhering it to my card base. For the sentiment, I used My Creative Time~Vintage Stitched Label Die for the banner and then the Fright Night stamp set for the sentiment. Once the banner was in place, I added the "31" from the Mini Numerals pack using foam pop dots for a bit more dimension. Finally Witchy Tia was added to the card, again using some foam pop dots and I further embellished with some mini bat punches.

So there you have it....
my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
As always I have linked all the supplies I used from The Kraft Outlet throughout my description.  If you have not checked out the store yet....make sure you do! There is so much available, the prices are so reasonable and shipping is super fast!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT Monday!!
