Bewitchin' Birdbrains

Good morning!  Our challenge this week, at From the Heart Stamps, is to use any of the past sketches....I chose to use last week's sketch and went with a Halloween theme.  Halloween and Birdbrains, sounds fun!  Right?!  Here's the sketch:

The image is colored with pencils and accented with glitter.  I thought I was so clever using the text patterned paper for the "sentiment" portions of the card...until I was finished, looked at the sketch, and realized I turned my papers around....  The text was supposed to go across the top and bottom, not the middle!  Ugh!  I added brads, ribbon, and die cut moon and clouds for embellishing.  I like this one (even if I did mess it up!)...the Birdbrains are adorable!
