Happy Fright Night

This week's Hanna Stamps challenge is a sketch challenge. You can find the challenge here. Amanda created this fun sketch for us. I started by picking my colors. I knew I wanted to use the Witch on a Broom Riley so I needed some Halloween colors. I think Papertrey's plum pudding, summer sunrise, and spring moss work so well together for Halloween colors. I stamped Riley and colored him with copic markers. Then, I cut it out with a nestability die. I cut all my other pieces and then used spring moss ink to stamp the bats on the spring moss cardstock. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Spooky Sweets set. I sewed all the pieces and then assembled my card. Last, I added some dew drops to the corners. (I love dew drops and Kristi just got in over 40 different colors!!)

Have a great weekend!
