BC226 August Sketch Challenge

Howdy! Just a note that I'll be popping by your blogs to catch up on commenting as I can this weekend. Now it's time for the Blogger's Challenge. This week Lisa has given us this awesome sketch to work with:
I really enjoy working with sketches...It makes things so much easier. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this sketch. Today I am showing you a "Sneak Peak" of some of the soon to be available Amuse Studio holiday stamps, papers & embellishments. All these wonderful products will be available on Monday - You can purchase them by clicking on the Amuse Icon on my sidebar.

Aren't those stamps CUTE!!! - Everything went so well into the sketch but I stuggled with the Flower element in the corner and after trying numerous things I settled on the Twine bow as I really wanted my Spooky Fence to show.

Here's what I used:
Spooky Boo Day stamp set
Spooky Fence Die
Swirls Impression Plate
Card Stock: Slate, Pumpkin, Lemon Whip, Sugar, and the new Wasabi.
Designer Paper: Sleep Hollow
Ink: Wasabi, Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento London Fog (this one is not available through Amuse Studio)
Accessories: Onyx and White Baker's Twine
Twinkle Stickers - Dyed with a Copic marker but they do come in Orange (I just don't have any).
Paper Distressing Tool.

Now it's your turn to try out this sketch and link back using the Mr. Linky feature below:
