Hello Everyone,

For today I am going to be entering CAS(E) this Sketch, Fab Friday, AAA Cards and City Crafter Challenge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The sky was done sponging Distress Oxide Wilted Violet, Black Soot, and Carved Pumpkin in an ombre pattern. You will also notice the moon I created is not one color or white. I have noticed when the moon is low on the horizon it seems to absorb the color of the sky. This is the look I was trying to achieve. 
The stars were done by randomly dotting a jelly pen around the moon area. I also added water by literally clapping the droplets on the paper and then picking up the ink leaving a beautiful sky.
The sentiment was designed to look a bit distressed. It was actually a happy accident by die-cutting the letters using paper with a white core. It leaves behind a cut edge look which really drives the 'eek' home.
Challenges Entered:
City Crafter Challenge Blog: week #434- Halloween
Fab Friday: FabFri148- Color challenge
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS #293
AAA Cards: CAS Game #126- Moonlight

I want to say how incredibly sorry I am for AAA Cards. They lost a wonderful and talented lady, Melissa Lane. I know it was sudden and it must be so hard to take it all in; so I wish you peace and comfort. Also, prayers for the family members who must be grief stricken. Healing, warm light is coming from my heart.

Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.
