Sweet Halloween Sketch...

Happy Thursday Everyone!
As the title of my post suggests, my card is featuring a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday & their color challenge to use Real Red, Only Orange, Certainly Celery & Summer Sun. These colors were a bit of a struggle to work with so I threw in a bit of black and Halloween jumped in my mind. It may not be your traditional spooky colors for that holiday but I think it works with the sketch. Thanks for an awesome challenge ladies!! I also used more of my bigger pieces of scraps to make this creation. It's sooo nice sifting through my holder to find the colors I need & actually USE them! If I keep this up, I won't have any scraps left & that would be a REAL TREAT!!!!!

I've gotten a *ton* of laundry done but I'm still not finished yet so I'm going to start another load before taking the kiddos to school. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!
TTFN,
Hugs,
