Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 69

Hi all!

I created a little card to play along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card: 

Happy Halloween Hat

And here is  the inspiration sketch:


I created the hat from black cardstock and embossed with a swirly embossing folder.  The brim was cut from a strip of black cardstock that I cut with a pinking border die. Cream lace was added above the brim.  I stamped the focal image from Gracie at Halloween in black in and colored in with some Copics. I am a bit of a neophyte when it comes to the Copics, so please forgive my coloring.  I punched the image with a 1 3/4" circle punch and backed it with an olive pinking circle and adhere it to the lace.  This finished hat was adhered to a simple base of kraft, black and orange paper with pop dots. 

Hope you like my take on this week's sketch.  Thanks for stopping by!

Oh that's so sweet, Katie! I love the Divine Swirls on the hat! Makes me think of fall and chilly breezes. The coloring is wonderful and I just love the brim and the lace trim...hee, that rhymes!

Such a fun card Katie! I love how you've done the chevron border with the zig zag edge around the circle, it looks great!

Love this! Great idea to use embossing on the hat and lace on the brim. And the Gracie label is perfect for the trim!
