Waste Not Wednesdays wk17

**Second post for today - please see previous post for my Stamp Basket DT card**

It's week 17 of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge, and this week the lovely Sally-Ann at DigiStamp Boutique is offering a £5 voucher for one lucky winner... anyone can join in - just dig out something unused or neglected and get it on a card :o)




I thought I'd use one of my unused DigiStamp Boutique images, and this little cutie was already printed out (and has been for ages!).  This is Halloween Hattie and I've coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, and then used my viva pearl pen to add some detail around her - as I mentioned on my previous post, I lost my pearl pen at least 6 months ago and just happened to find it the other day when I was looking for something else.  I've also used my much neglected embossing folders and some scraps of core'dinations card, and then sanded and distressed them all.  The sentiment is LOTV and the ribbon is an old one from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I'm very behind with commenting as usual, so instead of rambling on about nothing, I'm going to have a mad dash around your blogs and try to catch up a bit!  Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Like this card. Especially like the use of the pearl pen. I'm a new follower of your wonderful blog. Entered a couple all from my blog dated on or after the start of this challenge each with something I have unused or neglectred. Saw some multiple entries by people so I figured that there was no limit. Please let me know if this is ok. Also entered a non-card entry, a scrapbook layout. Please let me know if this is acceptable. Have a nice day from me in Central TX USA.
