Sly fox...

Good morning all! If you live out on the east coast like myself, I hope that you fared well those crazy storms yesterday. I'm happy to report that we did not get ANY water in the basement! Woo Hoo!! Happy Happy Joy Joy!!

So, since it was a dark and stormy night last night, I made a Halloween card. I'm entering this for the Retro Sketches challenge #29.

A detail shot to show the dimension:

And the inside:

Here is the sketch:

I had this white card stock scrap that already had one of the small labels die cut from it, so I die cut two more for the top panel. I added stickers and that was pretty much all she wrote. It came together pretty quickly. What took the most time was choosing the paper for the card base! (Does anyone else agonize over that?! LOL!)

I hope you get to play along with the Retro Sketches challenge! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Chris ☺
