Cooking with Cricut Challenge: Purple, Green and Sketches

I am so excited to present my FIRST Cooking with Cricut Design Team project!! The challenge this week is to incorporate the colors purple and green with the provided sketch. Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday, so if you give me purple and green in the middle of October, I'm going to have to do a Halloween page! For this page I used a solid frame background from Storybook for the scalloped background, and Paper Dolls Dress up for all the cute little critters. I cut the ghost, moon and stars out of glitter paper to give them a little more sparkle (and less mess!), then popped them all up on glue dots for a little more dimension. All of the paper and the chipboard pumpkin border are from American Crafts. The 'Trick or Treat' title is a stamp from Inkadinkado. Here is the fabulous sketch I used:

And my finished project! (Along with some close-ups of the critters) :)
These are my 3 nephews: Brayden (a nerd), Braxton (Spiderman) and Nevin (the baby from "Addams Family), How cute are they!

I used a white pen from American Crafts to draw on the detail on the cats.

I cut these pieces out of glitter paper to add a little sparkle!

So there's my project, I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you will join in the fun this week! Can't wait to see all the fun things you create with this weeks' challenge!
