Graphicat Sketch #17 & SNSC

Hello My Friends!
I'm so happy to have squeezed in a little crafting time! And just in time for Cheri's next sketch challenge, so timing was perfect!  But not quite as perfect as having the chance to combine two of my favorite digi companies into one sweet card though!  For this week's Graphicat Sketch#17 I incorporated a brand new digi by Lina from the Sweet Nothing's Stamp Company!  Here it is:

The Sketch and the Sentiment are both designed by Cheri.  I used some left over paper I had from last year's Echo Park 6x6 paper pad... The Apothecary Emporium.  I added some gauze, and embossed the orange mat with my new TH brick folder. Cheri's "happy halloween" digital sentiment was colored with copics, and them distressed a bit, you can find it at her store.

The image is Lina's new release, "Hocus Pocus Sophie." If you're familiar with Lina's work you'll know that "Sophie" usually has sassy short hair.  But she decided to grow it out some, LOL! I love it! I think she is adorable either way!

Sophie is also colored with copics, here's the recipe:
Skin: 0, E00, E11, E13
Hair: E08, E09, E13
Outfit: C1, C3, C5, C9 & YR61, YR65, YR68 (stickles on her shoes, belt, and band around hat)

So here's Cheri Sketch #17... and I did change up a tad, just 'cause I couldn't get it to all fit exactly like I wanted it to, so I had to do some compromising, heehee.

Well guys, I've gotta run.  I hope you'll join us for this challenge, and I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it!  Happy October! Come back soon!
