Where's Your Mummy?

Well it's already mid-week and I'm glad this week is half way through. Another busy one around our house and at work and I'm looking forward to the weekend to get some of my Halloween decorations out and start getting into the Autumn spirit :o)  I can't think of a better way to get into the Halloween theme than this fun image from Digi Stamp Boutique, our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Gosh I love this easy and quick to go together sketch that Arlana created for this week's challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. It looks terrific and is easily scaled to any card size or shape and lets those pretty papers show through as well.

This week we're sponsored by Digi Stamp Boutique - our monthly sponsor - and we appreciate the support for our challenges from Sally Ann Hancock, owner of DSB, each month. The Grand Prize winner of the challenge will receive six free digis of their choice from Digi Stamp Boutique!

For my card, I combined three DSB images to create this vignette. The Mummy image is part of a special purchase right now at DSB and comes with two other cute Halloween images.  That Spooky Cat is currently a freebie there and the spider/web image was a freebie last year.  These were combined in my photoshop software, colored with Copics and an orange glitter pen used to highlight a couple elements and sparkle. A couple black pearls to enhance the Mummy's eyes and a spider embellishment round out the design. Papers used here are from Authentique.

I'm playing in several Halloween theme challenges this week with my card - some are asking for "cute" Halloween cards and I just love that emphasis on the cute which is my preference around Halloween - much prefer cute over spooky or scary things.  The challenges are:
Allsorts Challenge Blog - Challenge 176 - Too Cute to Spook
Digi Design Challenge Blog - Too Cute to Spook Halloween Creations
Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog - Challenge 137 - Orange and Black
Eureka Stamps - Challenge 10 - Halloween or Spooky
Hooked on Craft Challenges - Challenge 25 - Halloween
Lexi's Creations - Challenge 76 - Halloween

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Challenge 185 - BOO-tacular!
Just Some Lines - Too Cute to Spook
Card Makin' Mamas - Halloween or Spooky

Now, the rest of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday team has created some really terrific cards this week using Digi Stamp Boutique images and are so fun to see.  Pop on over to SSW and take a peek at the creativity there and play along with us!
