It's not very often you will see me "flip" a sketch challenge, but the focal part of the stamp images I wanted to use for this sketch challenge were meant to lay more horizontally than vertically. You'll see what I mean as you scroll down. This is the sketch challenge today at Create with Connie & Mary:

And this is how I "flipped" my card:

As you now can tell, my stamped image consists of a tree branch this is quite long for my little witch to sit on.  I am so happy with the way my sky turned out. I wanted to use halloween-y colors for my sky instead of the usual blues. The Rich Razzleberry worked out so well. If you would like to view a tutorial on an earlier post on how to create the sky, click HERE.

The embossing on the Basic Black layer is from the Spider Web Textured Impressions Folder and the "B-O-O" is from the Billboard Decorative Strip Die. I added a few Rhinestone Jewels for some bling:
