Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #11

** This is my 2nd post today. Please scroll down to see my Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop Post**

I was so excited to find time again this week to play along in another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! I don't normally create circle cards as I typically struggle with these, but I had SO MUCH fun with this one!!


I got a few of my new Midnight Feast stamps inky - the circular Boo! stamp and those fun little bat images that I cut out with my hobby knife. I was also super excited to use my Silhouette again for this sketch - the card base is from a trio of pinked circle shapes and that yummy scroll-y frame thing?? I cut that out with my Silhouette too! Isn't that awesome!? You can't really tell in the photo, but that frame is adhered with lots of little dimensionals, so it's popped up above the card base, which gives the whole thing lots of amazing depth and shadow. I love it!! Finally, I added some stitching and some layered buttons and it was done! What do you think?
