Tag You're It #32 - Trick or Treat Witch

TGIF!  I don't know about you but this week has been a real effort for me.  I felt like I was getting pulled in so many directions that I couldn't think straight.   That makes me I'm the sort of person who has to do something when it's on my mind... or it gets missed completely.. so it's not hard to side track me.   A little rest and relaxation are in order don't you think?   

 A new challenge begins today at Tag You're It!  This time the inspiration is from DT member Kelly Szafron from Kelly's Papercrafting!    There are so many things I love about this card... what about you?  The first thing I saw was that cute Santa, matching stripes, and then BAM!  That pop of gold on the sentiment and background stamping.   There are lots of directions you can take this one.  Right now my brain is stuck on Halloween so I thought I'd switch it up a little.  Santa has been replaced by a cute little witch, and the red stripes are orange and purple!  

The little witch image is from Serendipity Stamps Halloween Pops set.  She was lots of fun to color with Copic markers and I think she's adorable. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Gracie at Halloween.
I love my embellishments so of course I had to fuss things up a bit... some purple shimmer twine, wood veneer bats and orange and white striped ribbon for the tag. 

I used Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders to create those show stopper layers and then went looking for  a stitched die big enough for the witch stamp.  Score!  Waltzingmouse had me covered.  I love all the stitched detailed dies available now.. its so easy to mix and match brands and have them perfectly coordinated.
I can't wait to see what you make! Nee d a little more inspiration?  Just hop on over to the Tag You're It Challenge and see what the design team created just for you!

Have a great weekend!

I didn’t see your card or Joyce’s on the TYI post. Maybe my iPad didn’t load them all.
