WMSC120 - Happy Halloween

Are you all set for Halloween?  It's creeping up really quick so I thought I would put Wanda to work one last time before setting her aside for next year!  Halloween is a big affair in my neighborhood.  It doesn't matter if the weather is nice or rainy - adults will be in their driveways next to a fire, and lots of kids will be running in groups from door to door.  Everyone looks out for the kids, and most of us will be outside the house to save them any wait in getting their treats.
This weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge design is inspired by WM DT member Clare Buswell of Clare's Creations.   This design is a great way to showcase your favourite Waltzingmouse stamp.   Clare's designs are always beautifully dressed, and this design has lots of room for that, from the border through the center, to the little "buttons" for embellishing your design.   Remember they can be what ever you like - the sketch is just a guideline.  I started with my sentiment right in the middle.   I stamped Wanda the witch in shadowy grey over the sentiment and added some fussy cut bats for embellishments.  I used lots of layers - the opera tag stamp/die and a big stamped  doily for lots of drama!

 
I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this design!  See you over at WMSC!! Have a great day!

Jeanne

So much to comment on here Jeanne...love the cut edges with the patterned paper corners showing through. The doily was the first image I thought of when I saw the sketch and with the opera tag over it...perfect! Cute little bats and that big poofy bow and gem. Really cute card!
