ISS Sketch Challenge SC11

Today it's time for our monthly sketch challenge at InStyle Stamps and this is the sketch Taylor gave us to follow: 
Well, I just had to rotate it since I thought the image fit better this way and here is my card: 

Well, I finally started reading the Twilight Saga Tuesday night.  I finished Twilight on Wednesday and New Moon yesterday, but don't think I'll get too far on Eclipse today since it is Trev's birthday.  These books are really good, I just don't know why I didn't read them sooner?  Anyways, because of my recent choice in books, I decided on a Halloween theme and chose Witchy Chloe.  I love this adorable girl!  Notice the sparkly drippy goo border around the circle portion?  I love how you can use some of the border punches in this way.  I colored the image with copics and then colored a real pale yellow around it and did the same with the sentiment.  Instead of layering the image and sentiment, I just colored the border with a black marker.      

All this month we will be showcasing some wonderful new holiday images.  If you are anything like me, the sooner you start working on your Holiday cards the better....and even then, I still seem to rush at the last minute.  These images will be in the store by July 16th.

Please stop by and visit the rest of the Design Team to see how they interpreted this sketch (the links are on the left side of my blog).   We'd love to have you join in our challenge this month.  The lucky winner will receive up to 4 ISS digital images ~ head on over to the  InStyle Stamps blog for further details.

She's adorable. I love how you colored the border rather than layering, great idea.

I have the Twilight Books sitting on a shelf, borrowed from some stamping friends, I just haven't had a chance to read them YET. Soon...I hope ;)
