You call me a Witch...

Ok - I have to admit... this made me giggle!  I had to use it for this next challenge at Aud Sentiments - they want a "Funny Halloween" card.

The sponsor is Bugaboo and they provided images and some sentiments for the Design Team to use.  You can see all of the Design Team's inspiration for you and the challenge rules HERE.    
We are at the mid-week of this two week challenge - so you have time still to get an entry in the mix for the prizes!

I started with some fabulous striped paper from my stash - the colors are perfect for Halloween.  A black mat helps pop the image panel off the background.  The image was colored with Copics and I tangled the frame around her leaving space for the three Candi dots {also colored with Copics to match my colors}.  The sentiment was punched with an oval punch and slots punched in the ends to allow the ribbon to thread.  The inside mimics the front.

This card should be eligible for the following
Fab and Funky #189 – Spots and Stripes
Divas by Design – Autumn Colors
Totally Papercrafts #188 – 1 image/2 papers (striped and black)/3 embellies (3 Candis)

IMAGES:  The focal image and sentiment are both from Bugaboo.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is from stash; base CS and mat are both from stash. 
EMBELLISHMENTS: Sentiment tag is an oval punch by ____; Candi has been colored with Copics;  a Micron 01 was used for the tangles.
INKS: the image and sentiment were printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics:

May you color with abandon, create wildly and always make what amuses you!
