Back in time for Halloween

Hi all.  I am finally recovering from a very big bout of "life got in the way." Between dealing with real life, both happy and sad, and then getting caught up on all the work that piled up because of that, I haven't made a card for weeks and weeks.  Happily, I have found my way back to the craft room.

I don't really seek out Halloween related items, but I could not resist this adorable stamp from Impression-Obsession. I love cats, I love witches, and when they threw in a mummy too, well, all I could do was hand over my money. 

I used the current sketch at SCS for this. The image is colored with pencils, and the stars have Stickles on them.  I did a sort of out-of-the-box cut on the left side the stamp for a little variety. The image panel is popped up over a torn panel wrapped in embroidery floss. The sentiment is a sticker.  (After taking the photo, I decided the gray background was a little boring and stamped a few bats on it.)

The card is for the current Victorine Originals Challenge (#45), to make a Halloween card. It is also for 365 Cards challenge Day 230, Tuesday Trio, which required an animal, floss and a yellow element (that's the moon behind the cat).
