Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch - Halloween Greetings!!

Another wonderful sketch design by Mischief Maker Kelly today!  You could go all kinds of ways with this don't you think??!!
Well - here is the way I went:
I'm definitely in the Halloween mode with the release of Claire's wonderful new sets Cicely at Halloween and Gracie at Halloween.   Today I used stamps from the Cicely Set -  the sentiment, the bats and the little poem!

I used my Martha Stewart 'drippy' punch on the top panel and on a little panel under the poem (can you see it??)

I embossed the top sentiments with Ranger Distress Antique Linen Embossing Powder and embossed the poem with black. I sponged the poem after die cutting it but before taking it out of the die.

What will you do with this sketch???   Check out all the details on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog:

Kent and I are spending the day at Merry Meeting Lake in New Durham, NH with a lot of his cousins - an annual event - hopefully we're enjoying the sun and the beautiful lake!
