A new Sketch Challenge at the Outlawz October 1-7

Hi everyone! Welcome to October!
A new Sketch Challenge has been posted at the Outlawz! Click HERE to go see!

Wednesday Sketch

Our sponsor this month of October is the fabulous Polka Doodles!
Polka Doodles store

This is our sketch for this week!

Don't ya luv the sketch?  Below is my card I made using Polka Doodles Halloween Witch!

I colored my image with copic markers. The stars are from Jolee's and the ribbon is from my stash! The first layer is a brayered background that I made some time ago for another project and had a piece left over. The bottom purple layer is some cardstock that was also left over from another project. I used my Cuttlebug to cut the circle from Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle Die Set and the scalloped edge on the brayered layer was cut by decorative scissors! Anyone remember when that was the big thing??? Before dies came along!!!
The overall size of my card is 6 inches by 6 inches.
I really hope you stop by our challenge! Maybe you don't like sketches....the Outlawz has six other challenges to look at. But please look at the inspiration cards my teammates have made with the lovely Polkadoodles images. There is a card that is 'angelic' and there is a card that is 'geeky' in addition to my witchy card. And who knows what other cards may show up!!!
If you're not a member of the Outlawz it is very easy to join! Just ask to join and as soon as your membership is approved, you can go to your own page and customize it and add photos of all your lovely creations so they are handy to find. And there is a gallery with tons of photos of cards made over the years!! I know you will enjoy it!
See you there!!
