Witch For Halloween

Hi everyone! I'm back with yet another Halloween card! Only a few more days to go until Halloween then I'll start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas cards, LOL!!! I have a couple cute pumpkin stamps I can't wait to ink up and play with. The Witch For Halloween I used on today's card is a gorgeous digital image I discovered after receiving an email with a link to the A Day For Daisies challenge blog. I'm so fortunate to have so many thoughtful stampers share their treasures with me!

The current challenge over at A Day For Daisies is black out so I tried to use as much black as possible on my card but all I could think of was to use black as my card base and mat layers. So, my card base is Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of Halloween Night patterned paper. The shadow layer is more Halloween Night patterned paper layered on a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock. I wrapped some ribbon around it before attaching to the card base then added a pretty bow to finish it off.

The image was printed on the Copic X-press It Blending Card and colored in using copic markers. I die cut and embossed the image using my Classic Ovals Large Nestabilities. I layered it on Basic Black die cut using the Classic Scalloped Ovals Large Nestabilities then attached it to the card base using mounting tape. To further embellish the card I added two large black pearls in the upper corner.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
