 ----------------------------

For today's card I used the super cute stamp "Hazel", the little witch from Whimsy's Wee Stamps collection.



As usual, she's been colored with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I thought I could create a night sky scene with the black card stock in the back, and then added a circle for a moon. The black  vines inside the moon are made with Whimsy's new Leafy Corners die set, I thought it would add a little bit of spooky-ness to the card :-)

The sentiment was cut out from an old Halloween sentiment from a SU set. The paper is from Basic Grey (Eerie witches brew?). I did some maching sewing, and then added a couple of buttons with some hemp twine.


I have combined a few challenges here too:
Simon Says Stamp and Show...  has s super simple theme -  Anything Goes

 then I saw the

Stampalot Challenge -was  Take Flight - I thought this cute little witch with her broom would fit that so well too, who knows where she is flying next on her broom with her little winged friend the bat? 

And since I used some of my Basic Grey papers, I had to check out the BasicGrey challenge as well, the theme there is  Anything Goes so I am entering it there too.

Here is another photo of the card, a little bit smaller for those of you that  have trouble viewing the larger upload above.



 Actually, I am not sure which size looks better, so if you have a minute, could you please let me know if you prefer the smaller photo above, or the larger photo at the beginning of the post? Might help me decide which way to post them in the future.

Thanks so much for stopping by, don't forget if you like to be entered into the Whimsy Stamps prize draw, you have to comment on all of the DT blogs listed on the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations blog.


 Good luck everyone!

Your Halloween card is absolutely precious. I really love the polka dot paper you chose to be your background. It's perfect for your darling Hazel stamped and colorized "witch". She is done so beautifully. And that little baby bat sitting on her broomstick is adorable, too. Love the Happy Halloween font and the orange buttons you've added. The machine stitching is a really nice finishing touch. Beautiful card! Thanks for sharing it with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
