FFC #16 "Sketch Time"

Hello my bloggy friends!
 Welcome to another Funday Friday Challenge.
This week's Challenge:
"It's Sketch Time"
Create a project using this sketch:

Our sponsor this week is:

 One lucky winner will receive 3 digital stamps of their choice!! So make sure to play along this week~
Starts: Friday, September 6th 12:00AM
Ends: Friday, September 13th 6:00PM
(central time)
 Here is what I created using the sketch
 My card was pretty fun to make. My cardstock that I used is from Recollections and the patterned
papers are from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby's Brand). I just love that creepy zombie guy! Don't you? He is Brad Nailed Zombie and he is from Limited Runs Digital Stamps. I colored Brad in using my prisma colored pencils and blended with some gamsol then fussy cut him out. He is popped up on quarter inch foam squares.
I used my new stamp set from Close to my heart called Perfect Fit- Halloween for the sentiment, "Happy Halloween" and for the "Oct. 31st" with the outside circle ring. I stamped the Happy Halloween in momento tuxedo black and the Oct. 31st in Soft purple from Hero Arts. All the circle scallops are spellbinders dies that I cut out using my Ebosser. The "Oct. 31st" and "Happy Halloween" are both popped up on quarter inch foam squares as well. Well that is my card today and I hope you like it.
