Playing with My Besties

Good Morning Friends!

We are waiting for 'the rains to come' here in Ohio so I figured that's makes for a good time to play in my cave.  

Today I'm playing with my new "Sherri Baldy "Besties' digi stamps" which I was thrilled to have won recently.  They are all so cute and fun to color and I won the entire 'Wizard of Oz Collection' ... how cool is that!!!   I decided to play with the image called 'Witch' for today's creation.  The the two main challenges I will be participating in are:
My Besties Norge - Anything Goes ( ends 9/13)
Besties Challenge - Monochromatic (9/9 - 9/15)

 And here is my card . . .

The background design papers are from my scrap bin.  Purple is my favorite color so that was my 'monochromatic' color choice.  After coloring her with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and cutting her to the size I wanted for my focus ... there seemed to be TOO MUCH white space so I used a Halloween Inkadinkado stamp to add the 'Bat vines' and "EEK!" is a Studio G sentiment stamp.  

I actually think I'll put a 'Birthday' sentiment on the inside ... something like "ANOTHER birthday ... ".

A couple more challenges:
4 Krafty Girlz - Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday Challenge - Anything Goes ... Birthday
Crafting by Design - Anything Goes

Well I hear thunder ... guess I'd better shut down until the storm passes.  See you later!  
Thanks for stopping by and
As always . . .
