Pixie Cottage Challenge # 85

Happy Wednesday!!!
Before I get to this weeks  Pixie Cottage Challenge # 85,
I'd like to say thanks to Michelle the owner of
Michelle's Scrapbooking and More
 and Tanya  for asking me to guest design
this month. I had a great time and I love my stamps!
The sketch for this week is a great one:
The theme this week is "back to school" so you can do either or both.
  I have had an itchin to make Halloween cards
and I used South End Witch digi for this card:
(click for sharper Image)

Having seen how some  leave their image uncolored
 I decided to pull from that and color just the flesh tones.
I also tried a technique of cutting away parts
of the image to allow the background to show through.
Let's call it unpiecing...
Thanks for stopping by!
