Halloween "Spooky" Wreath

Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share this Halloween card that looks a bit more sophisticated than what you would normally see at Halloween. The wonderful wreath image is from Doodle Pantry - one of the September releases.  I used this week's sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday again - I love this sketch and thought it was perfectly fit to show off the Doodle Pantry "Spooky Wreath".

Here it is a little closer where you can really see the glitter I added to the bats so they would stand out. You can also see the touch of my glitter gel pen on some of the leaves too.  The wreath was colored in Copics and in real life some of the leaves are an orangy red - hard to tell here.  It's so difficult to photograph reds. The pumpkins stand out a little better too.  But I think you can imagine the rich color palette this actually is. 

For you Doodle Pantry fans, we're about a week away from the October release of new digi collections.  So stay tuned for that - you'll love what Laurie is drawing up for next month.

Thanks for stopping by!
