Freshly Made Sketches #99

Rita has a great circle inspired sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  I struggled narrowing it down to just what I wanted to put in those circles!  In the end, I decided it was not too soon to think about a Halloween card...especially when all I see is the candy corn display when I go to the grocery store!  I flipped the sketch, here is the original design for you to create with-

Clean and simple on the inside.
