Hi there!

I'm here this morning to share my card for the new Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. What a fun week full of WMS goodies we had, huh? Halloween is certainly on my mind, now!

Here is this week's sketch:

And here is my card:

Ooh, I just love it!

Halloween Party was the first Waltzingmouse set I ever bought, and Winnie will always hold a special place in my heart!! ;)

The background pattern was created using the long scroll border stamp from Say it with Style. It was stamped with VersaMark ink onto Enchanted Evening cardstock. I absolutely love the color combination of Enchanted Evening, Summer Sunrise, and black.

Winnie and the bats were all stamped in black and cut out. I inked all the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. The sentiment is from the new Midnight Feast.

The sketch challenge will remain open until Thursday, 11:59 pm EST. You can link up your entry on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. Top Mice will be announced along with the new sketch and some exciting news next Saturday! I hope you will join us!

We are headed out today for a family picnic, hope we continue to have nice weather. Have a great weekend!
