Basic Grey Challenges & Quixotic Paperie

Good morning afternoon! It's still pretty dark and dismal here - the kind of weather that zaps your energy and enthusiasm for doing much of anything except snuggling up in front of the fire with the kiddos, watching kiddie movies and drinking hot chocolate- all I need now is a log cabin on a snow-capped mountain and I've got my own little fairytale, lol. We can but dream... 

Onto my card for today, which is a double up DT card for Basic Grey Challenges with the theme Hallween/Fall and Quixotic Paperie Inspirations.

This little guy is called Leif Monster and my papers are Basic Grey's Mellow

I coloured my image and shaded the background with copics and used nestabilities to cut out the circle/scalloped circle. The matching sentiment comes with the stamp.

I also used the sketch from the very first Quixotic Paperie sketch challenge when creating my card. Have you entered??? Don't forget - a random winner will receive a £15 prize to use at Quixotic Paperie! You can find the post HERE
