Trick or Treat!

A year ago, I wasn't blogging.  I didn't actually start blogging until January so I missed out on Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving blogs but oh, my, am I ever making up for it. I've lost track how many Halloween cards I've made this year, but there's been a bunch.  And here is another one.
Gerda from Gerda Steiner Designs runs a monthly challenge and so far I have entered each one. The really cool thing is that she gives you a freebie digital image just for signing up to follow her newsletter. So if anyone is looking for a link to her newsletter, let me share it HERE.

The image for this month is a Trick or Treat image which I've featured on my card below!

I combined this challenge with a couple of other ones:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday (sketch is below and I turned it on it's side to coincide with my image orientation)
Another Challenge I entered was the 613 Avenue Create Challenge that has a Create Your Own Challenge theme this week.
Here is  the chart to Create Your Own challenge
What I used ---   Column 1: image, patterned paper, solid color paper
                      Column 2:  any sketch (Sweet Sketch Wednesday)
Column 3: Stickles
Column 4: bling
Column 5: twine
Other challenges I'm entering with this card:
Totally Gorjuss - string
Tuesday Throwdown - Halloween
Created with Love - Halloween
Have a great day and thanks for stopping!
