One Last Card for WMSC#61

I hadn't planned to make three cards for this weeks Waltzingmouse sketch challenge, but today I had an idea.  How many times have you said that?  Here is the sketch that I ended up loving so much I couldn't stop using it: 
And here is my card:

Halloween Party
I used Waltzingmouse Halloween Party again for this one.  Such a great set with so many uses other than just a party invitation set.  To make this card I first stamped some Waltzingmouse     Text-It gothic style text using smokey shadow ink onto some spider web patterned paper I have had since last Halloween.  The gray ink gave a very subtle texture to the patterned paper.  I used orange ink with one of the sentiment stamps to create a background for the circle focal point.  I then stamped the witch silhouette in black right on top.  I love how it turned out.  I layered that over a lavender circle and a black pinked circle.  The polka dot paper and orange rick rack diecut is from last years stash.  I added a few bats and also a double ended banner stamped with a sentiment and some images from Halloween Party.  This is one of my favorite Waltzingmouse cards so far.  I plan to give it to my little niece who is going to be a witch for this Halloween.  Thanks for taking a look!

Seriously? You have just ROCKED this sketch, Cathy! I love every single card and project! Wanda's silhouette looks great sparkled up like that! Love how you stamped her over the orange sentiment, too cool! The dots make her look a little less menacing ;)!

Such a fun card, Cathy! I love all of the patterns and textures in your card. You always add the best textures to your cards which makes them look even more cool! I always wondered how that set could be used for something besides Halloween invites, love how you used it here!! So glad you're using WMS too now. :)
