Sketch Saturday Challenge - An Early Halloween Card!

First off, let me just wish everyone a very happy September!! I love it when a new month rolls round, I see it like a calendar, a fresh new page to work on!
Anyway, enough of the philosophy (lol!) Here is my card for the Sketch Saturday Challenge this week, another fabby sketch from Jo! I used the new Dinky Dots Lulu Witch download for this card, isn't she just fab!? I decided to go for bright colours on this card, it reflected the good mood I was in when I made the card! I coloured Lulu with Pro Markers and used bright bazzill card for the background. The yellow moon was put through my swiss dots embossing folder and the bats and sentiment is off the new Crafter's Companion Occasions CDs. I finally added glittery ribbon, craft wire and brads as added decoration.
Hope you like and thanks as always for taking the time to visit me!

Love Becky xx
