Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Transport

Hello, friends - I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  It's Sunday and that means it's challenge time over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  The theme this week is Transport.  

By the way, we have changed the rules over at Glitter n Sparkle beginning with this challenge.  We now have a limit of 3 entries per person, and the top 3 will be chosen by the DT instead of  This makes things more fun!  I hope you will come over and play along with us.   Here's my card...

I love the image I got to play with this week - it's called Purrcedes by Floppy Latte - this little kitty is just so cute travelling around on her broom!  I printed the image, die cut, coloured with pencils, sponged the edges with black ink, and mounted on a black die cut.  I covered a white card base with black cardstock and affixed panels of patterned paper and embossed cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in black on a die-cut oval and sponged with black ink.  Lastly I embellished with wooden skull and bat and glittery ghost and stars.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stamp:  Described above
  • Sentiment:  Studio G
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured Pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Patterned paper:  Cat on broom (Free Craft Downloads - thank you), Bats (MyGrafico - thank you)
  • Dies:  Spellbinders Labels 22,  Nellie's Multiframe Ovals
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles
  • Accents:  Dollarama
  • Sketch:  C.R.A.F.T. Challenge (see below)

We have some awesome prizes again this week at Glitter n Sparkle, so I hope you'll link up your Transport creation.  Here's what you could win:
