Sketch Saturday #232

It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
Sponsored by the amazing 

This week we have a wonderful sketch designed by Liz, and Krista was kind enough to provide us with some images to use.  I chose this absolutely gorgeous Hatress and coloured her with Copics.

The shape of the card is cut using a Go Kreate die.  My papers are the divine Graphic 45.  I think they are called Halloween Wonderland.  I used an EK success punch to cut out a strip of almost invisible flowers at the base of the stripy paper and added three Recollections flowers and two of my favourite Marianne Die skeleton leaves.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz #43 who cooked up a recipe for "1 image/sentiment, 2 DPs and 3 flowers/embellishments"
Raise the Bar #118 "anything goes"
Marianne's Design "shaped card"
and of course Saturated Canary #29 who also want a "shaped card"
It's a fabulous sketch!  Do share some love with my teamies at Sketch Saturday and then come and play along with us.

Fab card Leslie, love the way you've done the background to the stamping, very effective.

While I was having a tidy up I found a Cricut branded USB cable. I know you've probably got any number of them but it's all packaged up and ready to send to you if you email me your address. Hope the Cricut's behaving itself btw.

Julie said...

Fabulous card, Lesley - so beautifully coloured and I love the shape and how you've slightly trimmed the circle for the image!! Great to catch up on Monday, see you Saturday! Hugs, Juliexx
