Don't Be Afraid

Sorry I have been unavailable for awhile....
I took a quick and unexpected trip... 
and just got home last night!!
 
I had a few challenges I was hoping to do before they ended....
One was using the Sketch from

CAS on Sunday
 
 
One was the cute inspiration one at Papercraft Star using the image below....
 
 
 
I had so many ideas for this one, but not nearly enough time....
So I came up with this card....
 
 
I used the negative of a circle and sponged  my moon with TH Distress inks...
The broom is from Graphic 45, it has been slightly "popped" up and I added
 a bit of Halloween twine (can you see it...lol) to make it look like a real broom...
The kitties were cut with Impression Obession dies from a thin glitter paper....
The sentiment is from one of the $1 bin stamps you see around...
that's it...simple but I like it!!!
